Preparing Lettuce

Category Vegetables

Instead of cutting lettuce with a knife, tear it with your fingers. It will help prevent the edges from browning.

I've been doing this for years. I think it is just easier too. I don't wash the whole head of lettuce either.....I just pull off some big hunks of lettuce, wash, dry on paper towels and then shred up with a knife or tear up for tossed salad.

I wrap the rest of the unwashed lettuce in paper towels, followed by some foil and then slip into a plastic bag. I think the lettuce lasts longer this way.

This is not about preparing lettuce it is a recipe that I have used for years. I don't know if you have heard of wilted lettuce. Most people use leaf lettuce for this but I use iceberg. Tear it like you are making a salad put some salt and vinegar on it. Then in a skillet heat some bacon grease and canola oil until smoking quickly pour this over the lettuce and stir will pouring the grease over it. Oh yes, I also put onions in with the lettuce. A piece of cornbread and that is all you need.

Is it true that lettuce "rusts" quicker if you cut it with a knife?

I understand if you cut lettuce using a chef knife, slicing off what you need then wrapping lettuce in wet paper towels. The lettuce would last longer.

If you use a plastic knife you will have no problems.
