Keep Your Leafy Greens Fresh and Crisp

I learned that to keep leafy greens fresh and crisp (grocery or garden) in the refridge one should take the leaves off the stalk and place them in a colander and run cold water over them to clean them and to leave them a little moist. You may spin the leaves somewhat dry, but not all the way! Then leave them in your colander with a damp paper towel over them!

The secret is to keep them a little moist and to allow the air to move around them to let them breathe. Leaving them in the plastic bags they come in from the store helps them wilt much quicker. They will be fresher this way!
