TIP - If You Need to Store Vegetables for Several Days

Niki | Aug 22, 2005 12:39 PM

I only do a fruit/Vegetable shopping about every 5 days and I had been wondering whether veg. would taste better blanched immediately after purchase and warmed/put in salad as needed (refrigerated in a tight plastic bag) or just held raw in the crisper and cooked as needed.
The verdict is in: the string beans I blanched thursday taste much sweeter (actually just as good as on thursday) than the ones I just steamed (monday)from the raw state that had been in the fridge since thursday.

Want to stay up to date with this post?
