    Fresh cut carrots and celery, what's the best way to store them?

    Helping with a local dinner and need to prep and store these a few days in advance. Will be served as fresh with some ranch dressing. Also adding cucumber.

    Thanks,
    Hoss

    They'll be good for a few days in a covered cambro or tupperware type container. You can add a moist paper towel if you like. Cukes, squash, red bells will last a couple days. Mushrooms (if used) best prepared day of or day before.

    We serve veggies as individual servings in containers like these with the dressing piped into the bottom. Classes them up a little.

    Either wrap them in damp paper towels and store them in ziplock bags or in cold water , covered. Change the water every day or 2

    I think experiments proved earlier that such items actually keep well if cut with properly sharp tools

    Is the wet paper towel thing really legit?

    I know we all do it but isn't it actually just introducing a vector for bacteria?

    I'm tempted to say put em in water. But that's just another vector.
