WE’VE all opened up our fridge and sniffed wilting vegetables to see if they’re worth cooking, with most ending up in the bin.
If you’re tired of chucking out food that you didn’t eat in time, this woman’s tip to restore limp veg will save you hundreds each year in food waste.
One woman shared a ‘life hack’ to TikTok, showing a pretty sorry piece of broccoli, which had started to turn yellow.
Normally the veg would end up straight in the bin, but instead she takes a knife and chops off the end, before popping it in a glass of water.
She sticks it back in the fridge, and when she returns the broccoli has perked up considerably – and has returned to a healthy shade of green.
The woman, called Alesha, said her veg was ‘good as new’, with the clip racking up more than 300,000 views.
People’s minds have been blown over the tip – as they realised they’ve wasted thousands over the years.
Commenting in shock, one person said: “Seriously? I mean seriously? This should be on tonight’s news.”
Another wrote: “WHAAT?! WHAT!!?? I wish I could apologise to the many, many broccoli I’ve thrown away.”
A third thought: “Honestly I needed to know this like 17 broccolis ago.”
This person pointed out: “Wait what? I’ve wasted so much broccoli.”
And someone else added: “Oh good gawd. The amount of broccoli that I’ve binned. I’ve learnt something new today.”
