Cold Storage

Most people use cold water in the fridge to keep herbs and bundles of greens crisp, but did you know it works for keeping vegetables fresh, too? Radishes and beets, fennel, potatoes... you name it. If you think it's going to be a few days before you can get to a vegetable, and that it might go limp and soft, store it in a jar or a bowl of cold water in the fridge. You will be amazed at how long they stay crisp!
