Secrets of Success

Stop Throwing Out Spinnach/lettuc



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.
