How To: Store lettuce

Store lettuce

Here's a guide in helping you store a lettuce properly and prolong its freshness. Place a paper towel on top of the lettuce and beat the stem portion with a hammer. Remove the stem of the lettuce by prying it out with your hands. Tear the lettuce into two sections or into small ones. Put all of it inside a zip lock bag and then place it inside a refrigerator. Take them out when the lettuce is needed for cooking. With these easy to do tips, you are now ready to cook those well preserved lettuce onto your tasty dish.

You gals were great! I had never tried these ideas, but am looking forward to trying them.
Two things:
1) If you don't have instant access to a hammer or mallet, turn the lettuce over, where the stem is on the bottom, and WHACK the whole lettuce straight onto the counter. Stem will loosen.
2) A wonderful gadget that can be found even at the Dollar Tree ($1) is a PLASTIC knife that is made for shredding lettuce. (Worst case scenario, use a regular plastic knife!)
