Prolonging The Life Of Greens


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

I buy the big containers of spinach and spring mix. To prolong their life, I wrap two paper towels into them by gently lifting the bottom and then covering the top. I will also wrap a damp paper towel around my romaine lettuce to keep ithe leaves from turning brown as well. Works great!

I never have wilted or slimy spinach or lettuce and never have to through it out!

    thanks for this. I am always letting my kale or other greens turn brown and did not know how to keep from this.
