Stop Throwing Out Spinnach/lettuc


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

I have saved so much $$ by just putting the spinach in a plastic food storage lidded container with a paper towel on the bottom and another on top of the produce! Keeps up to 2 weeks! Works on sliced bell pprs too! Dry off the inside of the lid each time you open and use some of the contents. It's the water/wetness that spoils the produce before you have time to use it all. Amazing.

    I've been using this trick for a while and it works great.

Sometimes I also put it in a ziplock bag and squeeze out as much air as possible and the really helps as well.
