Vegetable bags for your fridge!
I didn't take as many photographs as I meant to but this is an easy project to do. Now that everyone has received theirs as presents I can show you how they were made.
We change our tea towels either every year or every 18 months, depending on how good they were to begin with. I normally cut them up for rags but this year, they were still quite good so I made these bags.
Having watched my favourite gardening programme Beechgrove Garden (back in the Spring), they did a slot on how to keep your vegetables and fruit that you store in the fridge, as good as possible. The link to the page can be found HERE
Things stored in the bags they come in, even with slits for breathing, often end up with slime in the bottom that makes the food go off, not so with these little bags.
I use quite thick tea towels (terry towelling), if yours are a little sparse, rather than cut them in half, fold them in half then proceed as per the rest of the instructions.
First, take your tea towel, fold then cut in half across its shortest bit, the top of the picture in this case:
By the way, if you like celery, if you take it out of its bag and wrap it tightly in foil, put in the fridge and it will last far longer than normal!
Hope you can make sense of this:)
