How to store greens and herbs?

Tehran Times - - LIFE -

Don’t you hate it when you open up the veg­etable drawer and spot that plas­tic pro­duce bag at the bot­tom that’s filled with green slime that used to be herbs? You can ex­tend the life­span of washed herbs and greens by sev­eral days by rolling them up in damp pa­per tow­els and plac­ing them in zip­per-lock bags with the seals left slightly open.

The pa­per tow­els will even give you a built-in fresh­ness in­di­ca­tor. At the first hint of de­cay, you’ll see darker spots of liq­uid form­ing on the pa­per tow­els. This is a good sign that you should use up your herbs and greens within a day or two.

Keep your fridge clean! I know it’s not fun, but it is a nec­es­sary evil if you want food to last longer.

Left­over residue or mold spores can in­crease the spoilage of all your food that is in the fridge.
