Tired of Cilantro Going Bad?

image

The cilantro you are looking at was purchased 9 days ago. Finally I have found a way to store cilantro without it getting slimy in the refrigerator. It’s simple. Put 3 or 4 inches of water in a container. Seen here is a one gallon pitcher. Rinse the bottoms of your cilantro bunches. Originally I was able to put four large bunches of cilantro in this container. Cover loosely with a plastic bag and store in your refrigerator. Every few days change the water and rinse the bottoms. That’s it! If you are excited about this or you try it and it works for you, please send me a message. Enjoy.

LOL DIY Dehydrator

If you Google “diy dehydrator” you will find some great ideas – some pretty easy, and others, well, complicated. The idea is that electric dehydrators zap nutrients and taste. I have never owned an electric dehydrator; neither have I done thorough research about the pros and cons of one. However, I do celebrate the art of diy resourcefulness and get a huge kick out of simple, low cost ideas that work – especially from items you already have in and around your home.


I present to you my latest product ;)


{Deep ‘Commercial Man’ voice} The Redneck Dehydrator!

LOL Dehydrator

Today is the first day – I will let you know how it works after the peppers dry.


What you’ll need:

  • Box fan
  • Cooling racks
  • Clamps

Of course, you’ll need to avoid juicy fruit, i.e. tomatoes, because the clamps will squish them and make a big mess… 


What do you think? Do think this will work? Or is it an epic fail? Your comments welcome…
