xposted to vegans..

anyone have any ideas for keeping veggies fresh for four or five days? especially tomatoes, lettuce, mushrooms and some of the other "softer" use in two days veggies?

i am trying to meal plan for a week, but am only coming up with being able to use those veggies right away and i want them to last at least 4 days....

Vinegar works really well for crisping up veggies that are a few days old. Half fill your sink with cold water, add a couple of tablespoons of white vinegar, and let them soak for half an hour or so.

seriously kept grapes fresh for over 4 weeks. Lettuce, mushrooms work great, just wash dry and vacuum seal
tomato/peppers freeze well after blanching....

"gypsy" is pejorative. please don't perpetuate the stereotype. educate yourself on what it really means to be a "gypsy" in this world.
