Jericho Romaine Lettuce

55-65 days. Bred in Israel's searing heat, this sturdy Romaine is a bit forgiving of occasional lapses in watering and of heat spikes, still retaining its crisp, yet juicy texture and exceptional sweetness. Jericho is an open-pollinated variety, reliably producing gigantic heads of strong, sword-shaped, upright leaves. Try Caesar Salad in Seconds: in your food processor, put 1 egg yolk, 1 tablespoon Dijon, a dash of worcestershire, salt and pepper, 4 anchovies, 3 smashed Garlic cloves, 1/3 cup freshly grated parmesan and 1 cup olive oil. Process 15 seconds. Slowly blend in the juice from one lemon (and more olive oil if needed). Makes more than enough to pour over one huge, freshly-harvested Jericho Romaine, roughly torn. Top with additional parmesan and fresh, crisp croutons. (OP.)
