    Green Beans: Store in a plastic bag in the fridge.  Wash before use.  When cooking beans, cook them a minimal amount of time (steaming or stir-frying works best). Beans should retain a bright color when cooked.

  • Lacinato Kale: Place unwashed kale in a plastic bag and keep it in the vegetable crisper of your refrigerator for up to a week. Wash well before use.  Kale can be steamed, blanched, boiled, braised, stir-fried, or sautéed. For an extra boost of nutrition, try mincing kale add adding to green salads, soups, sauces, or even fruit smoothies.
  • Celery: Refrigerate celery in a plastic bag for a week or more. Celery is susceptible to freezing so don’t store in the back of the refrigerator where it is coolest. Wash before use.
