I wanted to see how long they could go before looking old and gave up after two weeks. I wanted to eat the darned things!

If you have wrinkly cucumbers, put them into a bowl of water for a few hours or overnight. They plump right up. I figured if it works for them right before putting them up as pickles (which is what my Dad taught me to do as part of the process), it should work if I want them crisper for a salad.

Hi there! If you have a big freezer storing vegetables is not a problem. You can also prepare vegetables and keep your jars ready to open when you need it. To freeze vegetables you just need to blend them (or even not) and pack. Everything you might need for food storage you might find here https://allipackaging.co.uk/food-packaging/ Hope it helps!
