    My friend showed me this little trick and it works. I will definitely try the AF for the celery though. Thanks for the tip!
    Be the best that you can be at everything you do.

    My MIL told me to do this but I ended up with a bunch of soggy, slimy, disgusting lettuce. Wonder what I did wrong.

    I think I'd worry about the ink from the newspaper ruinning my lettuce. Going to try AF for my celery, onions a cucumbers. Thanks

    I put a couple of patter towels in the bottom of a tupperware bowl and burp the cover can keep lettuce fresh and crisp for several weeks. Put the core end down............

    Does the celery last longer in foil than the Tupperware keeper?

    I also wrap cheese in aluminum foil -- lasts much longer.

    Wonderful tip! Several weeks ago I was reading that celery helps to lower blook pressure, so I have been eating a lot of it lately. Now I know how to keep it fresh when I buy a lot on sale.
