Keep Your Lettuce Longer

Last week I mentioned how to save wilted lettuce, but how do you keep it from getting that way to begin with?

  • For starters you should discard any leaves that have brown or black spots.
  • Then soak them in an ice water bath for 15-30 minutes.
  • Spin them dry (or gently pat them dry with a kitchen towel) and wrap loosely in dry paper towels.
  • Finally put them in a ziploc bag, squeeze as much air as possible (don't crush the leaves), seal the bag 3/4 of the way and store in your fridge's produce drawer.

This entire process will help slow the deterioration process down and will hopefully, depending on the state it was in when you purchased it, allow your lettuce to last for up to two weeks.
