By March 22, 2010Storage and Preparation

¨ Asparagus: To prevent the stems from drying and toughening, wrap sliced ends with a lightly dampened paper towel, seal it in a plastic bag and store in the refrigerator crisper up to three days.

¨ Kale: Store in a plastic bag in the coldest part of the fridge for 3-5 days. Before use, rinse well and remove any tough stems.  Try kale steamed, braised, sautéed, or added to soups and stews.

¨ Zucchini: Store unwashed in a plastic bag in the refrigerator crisper drawer for 3-4 days.  At the first sign of wilting, use immediately. Softness is a sign of deterioration.
