Ever wondered what to do with limp lettuce leaves that have been left out of the fridge? Geoff Jansz has a simple solution: they can be revived by soaking them in cold water then refrigerating the leaves.


Geoff recommends the following steps:

  • Plunge limp lettuce leaves into some clean, iced water.
  • Leave them to soak for a few seconds.
  • Remove the leaves gently so some of the water clings to them.
  • Pop the moist lettuce leaves into a clean plastic bag.
  • Loosely seal the bag and put it into the fridge
  • After about three hours in the fridge the leaves will be revived and be back to their crisp, fresh state.
