View Full Version : storing veggies and dehydrating in the oven

my greens wilt so quickly and my carrots turn to rubber after a couple days - does anyone have tips for keeping things fresh in the fridge?
also has anyone used their stove as a dehydrator (w pilot light only - not on) i put some greens in there as a test, and they seem dehydrated, but just wondering if anyone's done this, what i'd use for a teflex sheet, is the temp ok, etc

I keep my greens in the plastic bag and often in the "crisper" of the fridge. You can put a paper towel in with them also. Same thing with carrots.
Dehydrating in oven? Gas or....?

HUM, I just used a carrot that had been in the back of my fridge for at least a month, and it was crispy and delicious.
So, I bring them home, don't wash them, and put in a green plastic bag, which is special--sold at the health food stores, you re-use them and they keep your food fresher.
I have several sizes,and all my produce goes in there.
If you need to re-crisp something like a carrot or greens, place them in a bowl and cover with cold water, let sit 30 minutes or however long you want, and voila' crispy veggies.
Works with most greens and veggies.
Think of your garden before and after watering, same thing.
