Keeping herbs fresh


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.
