How to Keep Lettuce from Wilting Quickly

Last week at the Nunnery Branch a lady asked me how I keep my lettuce from wilting so fast, and I didn’t have a good answer at the time, but I asked a friend and now have a great solution that worked so well for me this week. (Hope she’s reading!)

When you get your lettuce home, tear each leaf off the stem, rinse it and let it soak for a minute in a bowl of water. Take it out of the bowl, shake it off a bit, and wrap it in a paper towel before putting it in an open bag to store it in the fridge.

I did this on Thursday, and my lettuce is still lookin’ great!

Cooking Corn on the Cob

This suggestion came from one of our members this week…

Here is a great way to cook corn on the cob without the work of getting off the silks.
1. Use corn with all the husks still on it.

2. Microwave one ear for 4 minutes, or 2 for 8 minutes (seems long, may be OK with less time).

3. Take corn out with oven gloves on both hands.

4. Cut big end off through all the hus

ks so you are cutting a few of the kernels.

5. Hold corn by top of husks and shake 2-3 times.

6. Corn will drop out of husks with no silk on it.
