Fruits and vegetables require extra care as they can be easily contaminated.

When handling fruits and vegetables, one must do it as fast as possible so as not to expose them to bacteria and germs.

One must also make sure that all the surfaces they come in contact with are clean and germ-free. Here are three ways to handle fruits and vegetables easily:

If you don't have an ice cream scoop, you can use a rounded spoon although the edges would not be as sharp.
