There are many different ways to store your greens and no one way works for everyone. My way is what I call, The Quick Use Way! These are things I will be using in recipes daily or are scraps to use in other dishes. Since a picture is worth a thousand words, we’ll start there and save you some reading!
All of my “leftovers” go in a glass pyrex container with a secure lid. If you do any smoothie making, this is a great opportunity to save fruit and veggie parts that you would otherwise discard from a vegetable platter.
*Tip: If you buy veggies to snack on, pre-chop them as soon as you get home for easy grabbing.
I have our pre-chopped celery in another container filled with water so they last longer (this one does not need a lid). Then the tops and bottoms go into the leftover container for easy-grab smoothie use and Voila! No waste!
Storing Herbs: One of my favorite gals, Elizabeth Rider, shows you how to store your stemmed greens like herbs and scallions in this great video.
It really is that simple! Have fun!
