Naomi Said:I was making a salad recipe that calls for watercress. I found what can only be described as a tiny snail...?
We Answered:Put the snail outside someplace damp and rinse the watercress. No worries!
I worked at a restaurant where they bought salad components in bulk. You'd be surprised how often flies and worms show up. Just rinse the stuff off. These things grow in dirt, with critters all over and around them...think about it.
Katherine Said:Can anyone define how much is in a "bunch" when it comes to watercress?
We Answered:usually a bunch of watercress is judged by the diameter of all the stems gathered together and that would be about 3" - what that would be in cups I don't know .. I would hazard a guess that the leaves would be about 1 1/2 cups ...

Ella Said:how do i use watercress?
