Lettuce leaves provide a special flavour to popular snacks such as burgers, sandwiches and salads. An excellent source of many vitamins like beta carotene, it helps you to retain the health of your skin, eyes and bones. Pregnant women are also often advised to include it in their diet as lettuce has a good amount of folate that helps the healthy growth of babies. It also has calcium, iron, and Vitamin C and for the weight-watchers out there, it's famously low in carbs.
Lettuce is available in most supermarkets, where it looks fresh. However, when brought home and stored in the refrigerator, it gets spoiled within a few days. This makes many people desist from buying the vegetable. However, here is a method which will enable you to bring home lettuce and store it without losing freshness for up to one month.
The procedure is as follows:
Take a glass bottle and place the lettuce in it.
Pour sufficient water to fill the bottle.
Cover the opening of the bottle with tissue paper.
Close the bottle properly with a cap.
Store the bottle in a fridge.
The video says that lettuce leaves will remain fresh in the bottle for a month.
