Floppy Broccoli and Wilted Kale

No offense, but I think my grocery store (and I won't mention names) is at the end of the truck delivery line. Either that or organic produce just hasn't caught on here and sits and wilts on the shelf. I just want fresh, crisp organic produce. Is that too much to ask? I guess it is. But, aha! I've discovered a little trick that helps return floppy broccoli and wilted kale to its former glory. Simply trim the stems a quarter inch and stand them in a glass or bowl of water. In an hour or two your kale and broccoli should feel garden fresh again!

If you like tips like this one, please leave a comment. I'd love to know.

Oh and one more thing.
