Woman reveals simple tip to revive wilting vegetables

Many people have gone to make dinner only to realise their fresh vegetables have gone off and need to be thrown out.

But a now a woman has revealed an easy hack to revive wilting vegetables, which she says she now ‘swears by’ and stops food waste.

Alesha Ruddenklau, from New Zealand, shared a video to TikTok showing how to keep her broccoli fresh, by cutting off the stem and putting it in a cup of water.

Explaining that it’s the ‘life hack she randomly saw one say and is now an unconscious standard practice in her life,’ Alesha begins by taking a discoloured old broccoli out her fridge.

She then chops off the end and puts the stem in a cup of water, which she then places back in the fridge.

Alesha next opens the fridge door to show how the water revived the broccoli,  and made it look good as new.

The video has since racked up 340,000 hits, with hundreds commenting their shock.
