Wrap your lettuce in newspaper - it will stay fresher longer - sometimes even without refrigeration - don't know why you keep freezing it though

Face it dude,

Its a fine line between frozen lettuce and cold beer.
Mankind has been struggling with this for a few decades now.
There doesn't appear to be any middle ground on this issue.

Good luck.

Greendog mate, Just between you and me I think the availability of cold beer must take precedence. You must make it clear to your good lady that man did not fight his way to be top predator to eat weeds.







If you are still alive afterwards let me know how it went and just maybe I will give it a go. lol very softly in case 'er in doors hears

Good luck mate

Cheers Pop

maybe take it live in a punnet. All they need is water and soil and if you keep away the bugs it lives and regrows for ages.

What I mean is I'd rather shoot myself in the head than sacrifice cold beer for lettuce - which for all good intents and purposes has a nutritional value of almost zero, you get some benefit from roughage and chlorophyl but really, eat stub of broccoli instead.

Well here I go again and the bride will whack me again!

For many years I always try to keep lettuce in the everyday fridge by giving it a rinse in cold water, leave it a bit wet and put it in a plastic shopping bag (the .0001 cent) light ones, twist the top so as to keep in some air, then fold the twist underneath the bag. Bingo lettuce will keep fresh for a coupla weeks.

The bride dosen't keep that bit of air in and her version only lasts a few days.

I know this one works for sure guys.

Regards
Paul trust me on this one

We don't use Engel (EvaKool) and its just kept on a normal temp, but that is how I do it at home, as I agree with the majority that beer and cool water is all important.

We had that problem last trip when one of us changed the van fridge temp (we carry two fridges - food & beer&frozen) and everything froze (musta been me).

How did I get myself into this mess! I can't believe I am talking about looking after lettuce on the road. BTW I also froze a 6 pack & Fiona has just peeked over my shoulder as we are planning a major trip as soon as I install my new 'solar' power solution. My fridges use a thermostat to control temp.

It's really quite simple: you put the cucumber in the Engel first, and then that will freeze before the lettuce. The other trick is to learn to enjoy claret at Oz room temperature (50 degrees).
Dunno what the fuss is about, really!

As said above wrap the lettuce in newspaper place in a plastic bag and always keep it on top of fridge contents and all will be well.
And set the fridge thermo control to 3 deg c. Then it will cool to 1% then cycle to 5% and alls well. Then start over again. That is how we have our Engel set using an indoor outdoor thermometer.
Like others say the Beer must be below 5% C.
I used to have a handle on life, but it broke.

Cheers Dodg.

we use a 47ltr evakool as freezer and fridge on trips, and also have a 20lt icecool that we use for overflow, and as a crisper.
Using the freezer section, we rotate 1.25lts frozen water from the icecool to the freezer after 2 or 3 days, and find that with 2 in the bottom of the icecool, and some cold beer from the day before, the icecool is perfect for lunch, and vegies, and the beer is still perfect at the end of 2 days from the fridge.
Gives us that extra space, and a freezer/ fridge, and crisper etc.
Worked well in 36deg heat, hotter in the back of the vehicle.
