Asparagus Stalks should be tender and firm, tips should be close and compact. Choose the stalks with very little white, they are more tender. Use the asparagus soon – it toughens rapidly.

Cabbage and lettuce – Choose heads that are heavy for size. Avoid cabbage with worm holes, or lettuce with discoloration or soft rot.

Remove grease from soups or stews

To remove grease from soups or stews:

  • Drop a lettuce leaf in. The leaf will absorb the grease.
  • Remove lettuce before serving.
