Storing Vegetables

When purchasing vegetables, slice, cut or chop them when you buy them.  Then place them in seal-tight tupperware (NOT plastic bags).  They will stay fresh longer if in tupperware.  While cutting vegetables may typically aid in faster spoiling, remember you really shouldn’t “stock-up” on vegetables, anyway. If slicing vegetables such as onions and peppers they should last about 3-4 days in tupperware.  Tomatoes will last 2-3 days.  As for lettuce, chop, wash, DRY and place a papertowel in the tupperware.  If the veggies are already prepared, you will be much more apt to eat them.
