paper towel “wilty” veggies

paper towel

Ever feel frustrated that when you buy a big bunch of cilantro, a bag of bean sprouts, or a big clamshell of baby field greens, that it goes bad quickly within a couple of days? These delicate herbs and vegetables don’t have a long shelf-life but you can increase it by a few days by simply inserting a paper towel into the plastic bag or clamshell. The paper towel will absorb excess moisture that causes wilting and rotting. Whenever I get home from grocery shopping, before putting the produce away, I always put a paper towel with my veggies that tend to wilt or rot quickly. Definitely saves me from wasting food and throwing away $$$!
