Produce Storage Tips

Don’t rinse or remove the stem from leafy produce like kale before storing. Wrap leaves in dry paper towels and seal in a large plastic bag, squeezing out as much air as possible when sealing. Store cut kale in a sealed container in the coldest part of the refrigerator, and keep items like whole Brussels sprouts in a bowl covered with plastic wrap with air holes.
