If you buy vegetables in bulk, one of the biggest challenges is ensuring that they remain fresh for the longest time possible. It may come as a surprise but one of the best ways of refrigerating leafy vegetables is to put them in sealed polythene bags. This may not seem like a very environmentally-friendly option but it does the trick. Veggies stored in this way can remain fresh for up to a week. Herbs could even stay fresh for up to 2 weeks. This method of storage is ideal for most dark leafy vegetable such as kale,lettuce, broccoli, and even cabbage.
Another important factor is to ensure that the vegetables are stored in the lowest compartment of the fridge. The temperature within this space is ideal for veggies and there is also sufficient aeration.
Storing your vegetables in this manner will guarantee you a constant supply of greens without having to go to the market to buy them on a regular basis.
