After 4 Days…
Our ice gem lettuce’s were really put to the test!
Our ‘naked’ lettuce spent 4 days in the fridge uncovered. The results? A soggy, dark green, floppy lettuce that is way past it’s use by date.
This lettuce certainly didn’t make it on to our sandwiches or side salads and we could see that this would probably have gone to waste in a regular household.
Luckily, we have some hungry neighbourhood rabbits that ate most of it and the remainder was home composted.
When we uncovered our lettuce that had been wrapped in a beeswax wrap, we were surprised at how fresh it kept!
Bright, crunchy and fresh, you wouldn’t have known this lettuce was left uneaten for 4 days.
We popped it straight in a sandwich as all the testing was hungry work!
