Hi, I'm Teca Thompson, farm to table chef. Today, we're talking about how to spruce up wilted lettuce. So I have a bowl of water that I've iced down and here I have some of my Romaine from my garden and as you can see it's a little sad. It's a little wilty, it's not as like you know, vibrant as it could be. So we're just going to take the lettuce and we're going to place it into the bowl of ice water like so. And we're just going to leave it here for let's say 30 seconds. Okay it's been 30 seconds. So after you do that, you're going to take it out and you're going to put it on a paper towel and it's fine that the lettuce is completely wet because we kind of want the paper towel to moisten a little bit and so we'll take one paper towel on bottom, one paper towel on top and that's really great if they're moist, like this, you see and this will kind of keep them fresh when you put them in the crisper in your refrigerator. So I've got a gallon Ziploc bag here. I'm just going to place the lettuce in the Ziploc bag and then place it in the refrigerator and this will keep the lettuce cool and kind of moist and keep it crisp and ready to go for any of your fresh salads or dinners or lunches. I'm Chef Teca Thompson, that is how to spruce up wilted lettuce. Thank you for watching.
