When Bad Things Happen to Good Vegetables: Your food storage tips?

FoodFuser | | Apr 5, 2007 04:57 PM

Some of us may be guilty of buying too much produce or other perishables, for reasons like "great sale price" or "looks awesome" or "I'll use that real soon" or "shopping when hungry", etc. Then, the rotating problem becomes how to keep it close to its peak of freshness.

What are your storage tips? Along with veggies, please include things like opened cheese, cream or wine that partially are unused.

A few of mine, but I'm hoping for others:

Parsley and cilantro: Sling it dry when choosing it at the produce bin, and wrap in several paper towels (which they provide overhead) before bagging.

Chunk cheese: once it's opened from its tight factory wrapper, it can mold in just a few weeks, no matter the expire date. Solution: add a silica gel pack wrapped in paper towel and store in ziploc.

Celery: need some tips here. Also, taters, onions. Also, cabbage that has been halved or quartered.

Your tips are welcomed.
