Vacsy food storage system recommended by Carol Alt
I just checked out Carol Alt's "Eating in the Raw" book from the library. I really enjoyed reading her short autobiography about her history with food, and her modeling career, it was quite interesting.
One of the recommendations she makes is for the Vacsy food storage system. It is a product made in Europe which uses a very small device, smaller than a compact curling iron, for the vacuum. The containers are glass and lids are made of Lexan.
Thing that appealed to me is produce that I don't use or use at a slower rate can be kept fresh longer. I'm thinking stuff like green onions and cucumber, and chunks of ginger which tends to turn quickly if not used right away. I cannot tell you how much money has been wasted on produce that went bad before we had a chance to eat it.
Carol said she was called away to Europe at a moment's notice just after buying tons of produce and didn't have time to give it away. She put it in the Vacsy containers and when she returned from her trip everything was still fresh.
Has anyone ever tried or used this product? It isn't cheap, but looks pretty cool.
