How do I keep my greens from leaking juice?

Answer

When your greens leak juice, this is a sign of bacterial rot. The best way to slow the development of this rot is to keep your greens as cold as possible (down to 32 degrees) and avoid free moisture on the greens. You can wrap a paper towel around the greens inside a plastic bag to absorb any free moisture that develops.
