Food Tip :: Storing Lettuce

“Lettuce is an organic animal. It’s a living organism and what happens, it needs oxygen to survive. When you deprive it of oxygen, basically it loses its ability to maintain its freshness and crispness. Basically it wilts or dies,” ~Grant Sate

So to keep lettuce in good condition, soak it in a cold water bath for 20 minutes, dry it, then store it in a large container with a damp towl or towel papers. This should old be done only for lettuce since it needs moisture.
