Storing Leafy Greens

Some say not to wash greens if you’re not using them straight away as they will go off faster, some say to place them in a glass jar, and some say to wrap them in a tea towel. 
I wrap them in kitchen roll and put them in a plastic bag! I find this method works best for me and the greens will still be fresh and crisp at the end of the week! I used collard and tried it with kale, but I’m sure it would work with other greens too!

This method is:



Great for reducing food waste!

Step 1: I Quickly rinse the leaves under some water. I buy mine at the farmers market, so they have little flecks of soil. Soil in my food, hmm yum!

Step 2: I then pat the leaves dry with a tea towel

Steps 3 and 4: After placing them one on top of the other, I wrap the leaves in kitchen roll and put them in a plastic bag.

Step 5: I take out as much air as possible, tie a knot, and voila! Leafy greens that will last me a week
