Do you store anything wrapped in kitchen foil in your fridge?

I think I am falling in love with the stuff....grin!

No, I don't. I know you can wrap celery in it, but I can't even remember the last time I had celery in the house.

Susanne you are right about the celery. If you don't have cherry try it next time with bacon!

I try not to 'cuz then it is hidden -- out of sight, out of mind, you know? I do use it to cover plates & bowls sometimes, though.

Oh let me jump in here. I bring celery home and cut off base and separate into sticks, bundle them up and wrap tightly in kitchen foil. You will be amazed how well it keeps, staying crunchy too. Same with fresh asparagus although it does not keep as long as celery. The sup rising one I found was bacon. Take it home and throw out any plastic wrapper and wrap it well in the foil. No sweating and I never throw it out anymore. Give it a try and let me know what you think.

If I see foil I usually know what is in there and the extended shelf life means I have longer to use it up. I also use it over plates will be doing that tonight with leftovers from a leg of lamb roast. If freezing something in it I often double wrap. Works great for no freezer burn. I keep a laundry marker in the kitchen to write on it what it is and a date....don't want any UFOs, (unidentified frozen objects). Smile!

Celery is supposed to last much longer without getting limp if it's wrapped in foil. I've never tried it since I seldom have celery.

It works really. I bought heaps of celery last week to make and freeze soups, and for salads. Wrapped it in foil and it is still crunchy. Going to cook with it today and include with different cabbages and red onions in a kind of warm coleslaw. Probable with soup as the starter then the warm salad with pork chops or pork steaks for the main. Want to make some flavored butter to go on the pork, not sure what flavour yet.

Yes I store most everything in foil... half used vegetables, lemons, limes, even blocks of cheese after I take them out of original packaging. Foil is the best!

I use foil a lot in cooking-but haven't used it to store things like celery and bacon-I will be trying it!
