Lettuce Overload

Postby Westi » Fri Jun 12, 2015 6:15 pm

What does everyone do with too many lettuce? I have sowed a couple of weeks apart but some of the early ones that struggled a bit have caught up so have a glut & they are just going over.

I have given away the best of them but have little gem, tom thumb and some other ones at the brink but too good to compost. I plan to make some soup & peas with lettuce but anyone have any other ideas?

Dear Westi, i have the very same problem this year, (if we can call it a problem, i suppose) anyway, Old Codger's hens are certainly grateful.... :)

I have also given a lot away......

Stir-fried lettuce with oyster sauce and garlic. Brilliant recipe - we make it often. Any crispy lettuce is good for this!

Thanks Alan

That's another solution to the overload! Looking forward to trying that but know I'll like it - lettuce instead of Pak Choi.

I add Little Gem to bubble and squeak but will now try Alan's recipe sounds good.
