A food blogger shared with her followers an unusual solution that could be of great help to those who want their lettuce to stay fresh even if they have to leave home for several weeks.
In a short video, shared on social networks, the woman showed the curious method in detail:
The clip shows how the blogger opens a glass container, filled with water and covered it with a lid and a sheet of paper. Then she shows that the lettuce is still fresh and crisp, although it spent more than a month in the fridge.
The woman later explained that the ideal is to change the water every one or two days, although if you go on vacation, you simply have to change it “the first few days, after which you can leave it in the water for a good week”.
She added that the trick also helps extend the short life of vegetables like radish, carrots or celery.
