Storage Tips

Sweet Potatoes

Store in a brown paper bag in a cool, dry, dark place for up to several months. Wash only just before use.
 

Napa Cabbage

Although the tender green leaves of Napa cabbage do not store as long as the firmer green cabbage, they will keep well for a couple of weeks in the fridge. Just wrap the cabbage loosely in a dishtowel. New to Napa cabbage? Check out this handy primer on this versatile vegetable.
 

Arugula

Store in the fridge in the plastic bag it came in. Best used within 3-4 days.
 

Green Leaf and Red Leaf Lettuce

Wash when you get it home (a salad spinner is your best friend!) and store in the fridge in plastic storage bags lined with slightly spritzed paper towels. Keeps well for a week or sometimes slightly longer.
 

Broccoli

Plop it in the fridge, in any old place. Stores a well for a week or two.
 

Carrots and Salad Turnips

Begin by trimming off the tops (here are five ways to incorporate the tender carrot tops into your meals). Then wash off the dirt and store in the fridge in sealed plastic storage bags lined with spritzed paper towels for up to a month. 
 

Lacinato (AKA “Dinosaur”) Kale

Unlike other members of the kale family, Lacinato kale does not store well once washed, so wait to rinse until right before you eat it. Store loosely in plastic bag in the fridge for up to one week.
