  Categories: Pickles, Jams
       Yield: 4 servings
  
       1    Head of lettuce
       2 c  Vinegar
       1 c  Water
       3 ts Salt
       2 ts Dill weed or dill seed
       2 ts Fennel, fresh or seed
       1 ts Rue (optional)
  
      1) Combine the water and salt in a 1-quart jar which has a tight fitting
   lid.  Add the vinegar, dill, fennel, and rue.
   
      2) Separate the lettuce leaves and add them to the liquid.  Seal the jar
   and let sit until ready (about 48 hours) NOTE: The original recipe from
   Columella calls for salting the lettuce first, letting it “sweat” for 24
   hours, and then pickling.
