Stage 1 -
Stand the lettuce with the stalk upwards.
Stage 2 -
Pull off any damaged leaves and discard.
Stage 3 -
Lie the lettuce on its side and cut off the stalk.
Stage 4 -
You can trim off the stiff white part at the base of the leaves if you want a more tender lettuce.
Stage 5 -
Try to keep the "heart" of lettuce, kids love to find it in their plates.
Stage 6 -
Put the lettuce leaves in a large container of water that is not too cold (more efficient at removing any earth), adding 1 tablespoon white (spirit) vinegar.
Leave the leaves to soak for 10 minutes or so to wash them.
Stage 7 -
After this, "play the spider", which means remove the leaves from the water by lifting them out with your hands. This leaves any dirt at the bottom undisturbed.
Stage 8 -
Your lettuce is ready.
