I love using fresh herbs whenever I can in my cooking. However, when I spend money on herbs & they only last a day or so, drives me crazy!
I wish I could take credit for this tip, but a colleague of mine shared this with me some time ago (thanks Petina!!). I’ve been storing my fresh herbs like this ever since. My herbs will easily last 7 days stored this way, even up to 10 days.
Here’s what to do…..
Take 2 pieces of paper towel & thoroughly well the towel with water, then give the towel a light squeeze.
Wrap the herbs tightly in the wet towel, then store in an airtight container in the fridge.
