Keep the color on your vegetables……
* To keep boiled vegetables bright-colored, add a few drops of olive oil to the water.
* To keep vegetables from discoloring after they are peeled, cut the pieces into a bowl of salted water (about 1 tablespoon to a quart of water). This works especially well with potatoes.
