Why Does My Lettuce Freeze?

Querencia | Mar 1, 2007 08:10 PM

Can anyone offer insight as to why my lettuce and celery, always stored in the identical way in the identical crisper drawer of the identical refrigerator, with absolutely no adjustment to the temperature and no environmental changes I can think of, sometime are just fine (nice and crisp) and other times freeze hard and have to be thrown out? I can't discern a pattern. I wash lettuce and celery after I buy it, drain it on a towel, then store it wrapped in a big linen cloth (I cut up an old linen tablecloth to make four big squares just for this purpose). How do restaurants store lettuce?
