If you notice your broccoli starting to get limp and droopy don’t throw it out. Limp broccoli can be made fresh again by trimming the end of the stalk and placing the broccoli in a cup of water. After a day or two in refrigeration the broccoli will be fresh and firm again.

GREAT suggestion and it worked 100%.
That’s my mom’s trick as well. But, is it still nutritious at that point? Have read on net it is not…
Modern (frost-free) refrigerators suck all the moisture out of everything.
This is why your broccoli (and other veggies) is going limp.
The nutritional value (assuming there is no mold or rot of any kind) is not affected in the slightest, and in fact is more concentrated since there is now less water in the vegetable.
Of course, the best vegetables go from harvest and into the cook-pot in less than ten minutes…so something that has been kept around long enough to get rubbery is probably already less nutritious than it could/should be.
