    I took quart sized jars, two heads of lettuce, chopped it bite sized, and filled 4 jars.

      Salad in a jar used a food saver to vacuum seal romaine lettuce in mason jars. It keeps this way in the fridge without browning for over a week- so easy to grab a jar on the way out the door with a small container of pre-measured dressing and a baggie of mix-ins. When I get a vacuum sealer I am going to try this.

    (Works! My strawberries usually would last only a week, but after this they lasted 2.5!!) Cleaning fruit - fill sink with water, add 1 C. vinegar, mix. Add all fruit and soak for 10 minutes. Water will be dirty and fruit will sparkle with no wax or dirty film. Great for Berries too--keeps them from molding. will DEF have to try this!
