I have decided to close my blogspot site and move all my recipe posts over here so this is my first post.
Making Lettuce Last Longer
Lettuce doesn’t last long, it either turns brown or gets slimy within a few days and has to be thrown out. I don’t know about you but my family doesn’t eat a whole head of lettuce that fast. Now, granted, lettuce isn’t very expensive but why waste it if you don’t have to.
A great way to make lettuce last longer is to start by taking the core out of it. Do this by setting it on the counter, core down and with your body weight push down on it. The core will pull right out easily.
Now, wrap it in a paper towel and put into a Ziploc bag getting as much air out as you can. Then seal and put in refrigerator.
I also use a sheet of paper towel for all types of lettuce and put one into bags of lettuce blends and fresh spinach. The above picture is of a head of lettuce that is just over two weeks old….looks pretty fresh!
