Tuesday Tip and Can Top Poll Results

We go through a lot of carrots around here. I don’t know why.


But, even though we are big carrot consumers, sometimes, I’m lazy and toss a bunch of carrots into the crisper straight from the produce box without preparing them (i.e., peeling and storing in an airtight container). This results in limp, lifeless carrots. But, there is a solution!

TIP: To bring limp carrots back to life, peel them, chop in halves (or quarters), and place them in a reusable container with a about 1/2 inch of water on the bottom. Place them in the fridge, and within a few hours, you’ll have crispy, crunchy carrots once again. This should be used on carrots that are still “good,” meaning, they are not rotting, but are just limp and in need of rehydration.

Now, on to the results from the Canned Goods Poll. I am pleasantly surprised to see that more than 40% of you always wash your can tops. That makes me less weird than I thought! “I never thought of this before” came in a close second with 33% of the votes, and “No, a little dust never hurt anyone” rounded it out with almost 26% of the votes.


This was a fun poll for me to observe, so thank you for your votes!

For those that hadn’t thought of this before, will you be washing your can tops now?
