An Obvious but Nevertheless Forgotten Tip

To keep fresh vegetables and herbs, well, fresh just remember not to wash them and store them in the fridge. The moisture from the water, combined with the oozing oxygen and moisture from the vegetables, will make it spoil much faster. So, just make sure to wrap your herbs in a dry paper towel and store in a ziplock bag and store your vegetables in a plastic/ziplock bag. Wash right before using. You’ll see a difference in how long your produce lasts- plus you’ll definitely get your money’s worth!

  1. Interesting…I always find my veges go limp and dry if I don’t spray them with a bit of water before loosely plastic bagging and then refrigerating. Although I have to agree herbs are probably best not sprinkled with water, esp tender leaf ones.

    1. when i buy my produce from the american grocery store, they prewash all the veggies, which in my experience makes them spoil faster. But, when i buy produce at the Indian grocery store, they don’t prewash anything, and the fridge life is muchhh longer!
