do you take it out of the plastic before wrapping in in AF? I can never keep celery.. thanks
Welcome to the Quilting Board!
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 ?

I knew about celery, but not lettuce. Thanks!
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.

Someone in my weight watchers class just mentioned this method today! Must be true. Thanks
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!
I wrap lettuce in newspaper and celery in foil. both work great.
