Lettuce is one of the oldest vegetables in the world that originates in India and Central Asia. The history of lettuce consumption in Iran is six centuries BC. It grew to Rome a century BC and became one of the most important Romanian cuisine.Lettuce has a variety of varieties. Common lettuce, lettuce, leaf lettuce and more.
All its types are also delicious and give humans a sense of life. If you like to plant this plant yourself in a perfectly organic way, we will teach you the trick.
Let’s say that lettuce is generally divided into four categories, each of which has a different planting and maintenance method. The reason is that the heat tolerance is different for each other.
Crisp and hardy (though not as flavorful as other lettuces), iceberg that’s unwashed and stored in a plastic bag in the fridge will keep for up to two weeks — twice as long as most other kinds. Look for firm, densely packed heads that are heavy for their size. Cut into wedges and serve the classic steak house way: drizzled with blue cheese dressing.
Butterhead – Lettuce
This variety has small, round, loosely formed heads and soft, supple leaves that bruise easily. Boston is a larger and fluffier head than Bibb. Both Boston and Bibb lettuce make perfect cups for cooked ground chicken or shrimp.
Green Leaf Lettuce
Don’t look for a “head” here; the leaves branch from a single stalk. For this reason, leaf lettuce is generally more perishable than head varieties; you’ll often see it in “baby lettuce” mixes because of its tenderness. To avoid instant wilting, postpone dressing leaf lettuce until just before serving.
Red Leaf Lettuce
Don’t look for a “head” here; the leaves branch from a single stalk. For this reason, leaf lettuce is generally more perishable than head varieties; you’ll often see it in “baby lettuce” mixes because of its tenderness. Red leaf has a burgundy tint and mild flavor, similar to that of green leaf. To avoid instant wilting, postpone dressing leaf lettuce until just before serving.
With its long, slightly bitter leaves and sturdy, sweeter center ribs, romaine provides a robust crunch to any meal. Grocery stores have recently started selling packages of hearts of romaine. For a special summer treat, halve each heart, brush with olive oil, and grill until lightly browned.
