Easy Removal of Head Lettuce Core

Coring a head of lettuce will help keep it fresh longer and make it easier to prepare when you use it. Listed below are the easy step-by-step instructions on how to easily remove the core.
  • Hold the head of lettuce in both hands about 6 to 8 inches above a solid surface. Be sure the core end is down.
  • Bring the head down, hitting the core solidly on the surface.
  • The solid hit will separate the core from the head and it can then be easily twisted and pulled from the head.
  • If the head of lettuce, or a portion of it, is not going to be used immediately, wrap it in a damp paper towel and place in a sealable bag. Squeeze air out of the bag before sealing and then place in the refrigerator.
