1. Keeping Green-Leafy Vegetables Fresh

Green-leafy vegetables can maintain their freshness by washing them in cold water, allot time for them to dry, and then put them into portion size plastic bags. Blow the bag for air, and seal it.

Sometimes, tiny egg shells break into your bowl of eggs. Get a piece of egg shell half and use it in scooping those smaller egg shells.

Putting eggs in water is one way of knowing their level of freshness. Eggs that sink to the bottom are fresh. An egg that slightly rises isn't that fresh anymore, but it can still be eaten. Avoid eating egg that floats to the top since it's no longer fresh.

Preserve some of your herbs. Put them in an ice cube tray with olive oil, and put the tray in the freezer.
