Fresh vegetables are great. They are healthy and can be delicious, but they also are expensive. And it’s frustrating when your veggies go bad before you even have a chance to eat them. It’s money in the trash.
But, Tiphero has a great way to prolong your veggies and it doesn’t take a lot of effort. This is great for people who can only go to the store once a week or so. We need to make our veggies last and these three steps can help.
- When you bring your vegetables home, wash them thoroughly and shake off as much excess water as possible.
- Put the veggies in a gallon Ziploc or other closeable plastic bag.
- Place a couple of dry, clean paper towels in the bag, close it up, and store. Check every few days and replace any soaked paper towels with new, clean, dry ones.
Celery can be a different problem. It looks so sad an unappetizing when it wilts, but watch the video below to find an easy way to revive it and spare it a trip to the dumpster.
