Before you throw out wilting or rubbery vegetables from the crisper, try reviving them in a cold water bath to refuel their water supply. "When the vegetables are well hydrated, there is a higher pressure in the cells, and they break and release moisture more easily when you chew, so they seem crisp," said Kathleen M. Brown, professor of plant stress biology at Penn State University.
