However, thanks to Crunchy Chicken, we now know how to dig our own.
In this helpful little tutorial, Crunchy Chicken shows you how you can save all those awesome fall fruits and vegetables -- apples, potatoes, pumpkins, turnips -- even if you don't have a root cellar.
Essentially, you'll be digging a small (or large, depending on how much you have to store) hole in your yard, dropping in a cooler or other airtight storage container, and insulating it with newspaper or straw. It sounds a little wacky, but we trust Crunchy Chicken.
Have any of you tried this sort of DIY root cellar setup before? We're curious to know how it worked for you.
