7 Ways to Make Fresh Produce Last Longer-Vegetables
Vegetables like asparagus, bell peppers, broccoli, carrots, celery, cucumbers, yellow squash, and zucchini, should not be washed before refrigerating. If vegetables seem unusually wet as is often the case with supermarkets automatically spritzing produce bins, pat dry on paper toweling, then layer in plastic bags with dry paper toweling. Fold tops of bags over and store in refrigerator crisper drawers. Maximum storage time is 7 to 10 days.
