Lettuce in a jar
I read on Pinterest about putting chopped up lettuce in a jar and vacuum sealing. I was definitely interested as it keeps up to a week or more. As this was an American pin, I had to hunt around for the actual manual vacuum food pump. Neither coles or woolworths stock them. Not in Kitchen shop, eventually by chance I checked King of Knives in Galleria, lucky me, they did and whats more reduced from $19.95 to $3.95. Now I know you can get the electrical one, but as I don't have room for any more electrical gadgets I decided against them, also they are $129 and you need to get another gadget that fits over the lid and could only find that online so even though it was only $10 postage would have had to be included. This is where the internet is so cool, from the Pinterest pin I went to her blog, and on her blog she had lots of comments. One of them was on using the manual pump.
