When storing carrots in the lower drawer of the fridge, first place some kitchen roll on the bottom of the drawer, then put in the carrots and cover with more kitchen roll. You will find they will stay perfectly healthy, and not discolour or go rubbery for almost two weeks. Also, once you have started to use some of your iceburg lettuce or any other lettuce, then wrap this in kitchen roll and you will find that it will last longer. Also, after slicing your cucumber, cover and wrap the sliced end of the left over cucumber, again with kitchen paper, and secure using a elastic band. This will prolong the life of the cucumber for up to about 1 week without it going sloppy and being wasted.
