    Thanks for the tip, Corky ! I haven't heard of this before ...

    Also, just the other day I saw a tip online - if you put a metal FORK in the container or bag with a head of lettuce (also the pre-bagged kind) it keeps much longer ... ?? Has anyone heard of this or tried it ?

    Talk about perfect timing. I just bought some celery today for a recipe but won't be using nearly as much as I have. Thanks a million for this helpful hint!

    Works really great to put left over cut onion in tin foil also. Keeps it fresh. I will surely try putting the celery in TF. Thanks for the tip.

    I wrap celery in alfoil but haven't tried it with lettuce. I am going to try this as I get cranky about throwing lettuce out.

    You can also make your cucumbers last longer doing this very same thing!! Don't peel, just wrap with AF!
