Putting Green
 
As a certified judge, some of the turn-in boxes look wonderful. Do you place a layer of shredded lettuce below the parsley or just a layer of parsley to form the putting green? Just wondering how everyone makes a wonderful turn-in boxes. :-P

Nope
 
No Shredded Lettuce, but a ton of parsley packed tightly....

Correct me if I am wrong. You can use shredded green leaf correct as a bed right?

matthew burt 05-14-2008 04:44 PM

yes, you can also use all shredded green leaf lettuce if you choose

Paul first off thanks for posting that. Is that green leaf on the bottom?

SmokeMeTender 05-14-2008 05:15 PM

Now I see how you guys make things look perfect. Do you use the shredded iceberg lettuce that is already shredded (you buy at the store)? This looks like it is very time consuming and a lot of work - we are blessed as judges. :lol:

That looks great, thanks for posting.

Solidkick 05-14-2008 05:23 PM

I'd say it looks fresh cut.....

spicewine 05-14-2008 05:47 PM

Thats great except for the fact that as a certified judge you are not supposed to be judging the garnish.

I'm slow and don't make a lot of them. It's wouldn't be unusual for me to spend 60+ minutes making a single box.

I'm getting better. If the parsley is good quality I can do 4 boxes in under 2 hours. One contest it was over 3 hours. So while others party Friday night I'm doing boxes. But it does make a nice box.

I tear up about 1 large leaf of green lettuce for the bottom of each box.
