How to save time, and make lettuce last for a month!


My Kitchen tip for this week: When I bring home my groceries I plan a "prep day" this is the day that I cut / chop/wash or peel all my produce for my recipes for the week. Sometime if time allows I will also brown meat and cook and chop chicken for the week. This saves so much time during a busy week! To make lettuce and celery last for about a month- wash. spin dry, and wrap in either a kitchen towel or paper towel. then wrap in foil and put inside a zipper bag.

Thanks for the reminder about preparing produce in advance, I'll have to do better at that. And I'm so glad to know how how to keep lettuce and celery fresh, I've thrown too much away simply because it was more then I could get used up before it "died."

Mine keeps pretty long, too, but only if it is fresh from the garden. I can't seem to keep store-bought lettuce for nothing. I will try your idea when I have to buy lettuce again. :-D
