2. Sprinkle them with salt.

4. Put them neatly into a plastic container (tops and bottoms lined up together) and......

5. The most important step - put lots of rocks on top to press down on the leaves and help to bring out more water from the leaves. In one or two days the container should be filled with green water (yum!) and then the leaves will be ready.... I'm not sure how keen I am to eat them, but I guess the neighbours might enjoy them!
