Storing Vegetables Without Plastic in the Refrigerator

When I store veggies in the fridge, I typically just toss them on the shelf or put them in a glass container. Recently, though, I was wondering if there are better ways that would keep my veggies fresher. Lucky for me, Beth over at Fake Plastic Fish recently did a post on this. And just in time for farmers’ market season.

The post links to an awesome little flyer done by the Berkeley Farmers’ Market. It’s called How To: Store Fruits and Vegetables: Tips and tricks to extend the life of your produce without plastic.

Enjoy!

p.s. This isn’t in the brochure, but to store parsley or cilantro, I just put them in a glass of water (like flowers in a vase) and put them in the fridge. It’s a plastic-free solution and it helps them keep for a long time.
