Wanted to share, in case it helps someone else.

I used to throw so much of this pre washed/organic produce out, if it did not get used right away. Finally thought of putting a couple dry paper towels inside the plastic container or bag when placing in the refrigerator. It makes all the difference, as it helps to absorb excess moisture, and keeps the produce fresh/usable much longer.

Fresh spinach is a staple here, as it goes into Omelets, pizza toppings, salads and such. Used to sometimes open the container and get a whiff of wet/sour! Now I can actually use it up, before having to throw it out. Wink

Like FFG - Why didn't I think of that.

Perhaps we should start a topic of - helpful kitchen tips.

My mother just told me that the inner bags of cereal boxes are great to store fresh veggies in. She claims they stay fresh for up to three weeks. The only problem with that is that I don't buy cereal.

Well, I knew that. Smile
Rachel Ray used to tell us about that trick all the time. Works pretty well.
