Collard Greens

Freshness Tips

Different from Lettuce storage, with Collard Green you should refrigerate in a plastic bag, but do not wash until you are ready to use. This should allow freshness for 4-5 days. To freeze, wash the greens and cut off the stems. Then blanch for 3 minutes and chill quickly in ice water. Place in freezer bags immediately.

 

Cucumbers

Freshness Tips

Lot’s of debate on Cucumbers, but the most popular ideas seem to be putting them in a Ziploc bag without sealing it with the Cucumber standing up. Supposedly, it allows air to circulate around it. And, we have also have folks wrapping each one in a paper towel and storing in the veggie crisper. They say they last about three weeks.

   

Eggplant

Freshness Tips

Select an Eggplant that is fresh to start with. You can not revive an Eggplant that has already started to deteriorate. Do not leave the Eggplant in the sun for too long in the heat, as heat is detrimental to Eggplants. Place the Eggplant in the vegetable drawer of your fridge. Cold temperature will stall the ripening process.

   

Eggs

Freshness Tips

After Eggs are purchased , they may be refrigerated for 3-5 weeks. The “sell-by” date on the package, will usually expire during that time, but the Eggs with remain safe to use. Do not store Eggs in the Egg rack of the refrigerator door, as the temperature is too warm; Eggs will keep better when stored in the body of the fridge!

   

Green Peppers

Freshness Tips

Store Green Bell Peppers for short-term use by refrigerating them in the produce drawer of your refrigerator. To ensure good air flow, remove peppers from any plastic bag or container they were purchased in. With proper refrigeration, a healthy Bell Pepper should last from three to five days in the refrigerator.
