How Do You Keep Cucumbers Crisp?

Answer

Cucumbers are wonderfully crisp and nutritious but they can go bad quickly. Even in the refrigerator, cucumbers tend to get soft and mushy quickly, sometimes in as little as 3 days. One recommendation for keeping cucumbers crisp is to wrap each cucumber individually in a paper towel. Once your cucumbers are wrapped, place them all in a plastic bag for vegetables. Place the plastic bag of cucumbers in the refrigerator and enjoy at your leisure.
