Kitchen Tips: "Coring" Iceberg Lettuce

As I was getting our hamburgers ready the other night and banging the you-know-what out of my lettuce (you’ll see why in a sec), I thought, this is a good Kitchen Tip. And perhaps you all already know it…but I didn’t know it before I knew it, so figure there’s someone out there who can benefit! 🙂

This is a simple trick that’s not really very life changing, but it’s handy. Know that core in the center of the iceberg lettuce that you have to dig out and causes you to get lettuce under your I’m sure what are beautifully-manicured fingernails?

Just bang your iceberg lettuce HARD on the countertop – core side down. Flip it over, and out it pops!

    that is so funny, dear “young” mother…because I never noticed you doing it! I don’t think I figured it out until I worked at the oh so fancy boston market in high school. that’s so funny.
