Greens in a Bag

Another valuable contribution to Irish Attic from Debbie at

I live alone and I don’t like shopping, so I buy several bags of the spinach and lettuce in one shopping trip. I found they spoil so fast.  And spinach not in a bag spoils even faster. What I found that works amazing is to open the bag as soon as I get home and put in a couple of paper towels, then seal with a rubber band, twist-tie or bag clip
. If I seal it well between uses and change out the paper towels for new ones when they get moist it lasts much longer.

If  you buy spinach and lettuce loose or in a bunch, wash the leaves and make sure they’re dry. Store them in a repurposed bread bag with paper towels just like above.
