Kitchen Tips: Rescue Your Wilted Veggies

Aside from using ice bath in the process of blanching, it can be also used in freshening up limp veggies. Plants losses water content which causes them to wilt while ice water breaks inside plant cells to restore crispiness. Speaking of blanching, as I promise, I took photo of veggies - ampalaya, that undergoes blanching using the technique I learned from a famous chef.
