Im having trouble storing my leafy greens, things like kale and swiss chard. I buy them in the store them in the fridge and then buy the next day they are wilting. I feel like Im throwing away my money... help!
They do seem to help. It also comes with info as to which veggies/fruits to store where and what to store with what. They go into the whether the veggie is a high ethylene emitter, low, etc. Seems to have helped mine by popping these into my bins. I also have found that washing my leafy greens, drying them a bit and storing them wrapped in a papertowel in a loose bag helps too.
But these little egg guys do help so far, I can go all week with my greens staying crisp.
I went on a week long river rafting trip and learned so many great ideas on storing food. Take the lettuce, wash it, and shake it out. Wrap it in papertowels and store in an air tight gallon ziploc bag. You can reuse the ziploc bags. It lasts for a very long time. I've even used foil when I was staying with a friend and it worked great. I usually store it this way as soon as I get home from the grocery store.
By the way, you can store celery in a piece of foil and it will stay fresh for a very long time. It's the only time I use paper towels, foil, and ziploc bags. I usually use small glass containers to store my food.
