Storing Vegetables
Keep those veggies fresh!
Wash all vegetables. Romaine lettuce may be broken apart gently, layered in a rectangular container that has been lined with a tea towel which is then folded on top of the leaves and stored with the lid on - ready for quick access for that BLT or Caesar salad later in the week. Leave the bib lettuces in tact until use, or store in a special, air tight lettuce container designed with a small water holder which allows lettuce to drink. Trim radish leaves and their bottoms and store in a water filled container. Radishes may be cut in star or flower shapes which will open during their immersion in water. Trim asparagus bottoms and also immerse in water. Never store potatoes and onions in the refrigerator: they should be stored in a cool, dry environment, like a cupboard.
