Droopy, Rubbery And Squishy

Do you have Droopy Celery?  Rubbery Carrots?  Squishy Potatoes?  Think you need to throw them out? 
Well stop right there as you can revive them!
I am embarrassed to let you see my celery, but the good news is that I had learned how to rejuvenate soft celery, carrots and potatoes a while back, so I did not have to throw it out.

I never like to throw food out, so I decided that I needed to figure out how to revive my carrots, celery and potatoes and preferably without needing to take up to much space in my refrigerator.
With a little experimenting, I learned that you can revive limp celery, carrots and even soft potatoes in room temperature water, but for that extra crispy crunch it is best led overnight in the fridge and here is how to do it.
For Celery:  cut a bit off the bottom end before putting in the water.  Place bottom down in the water.
For Carrots:  cut a bit off the top end before putting in the water.  Place top (fat end) down in the water.
For Potatoes:  Peel and cover with water.
Left whole, it will take two to three hours to make these veggies crisp again and if you cut the veggies into strips or pieces and totally cover them with water, it will take as little as thirty minutes.
