Storage Tips for Keeping Herbs Fresh and Flavorful
Preserve the flavor and zest of those few extra herbs you harvested from the garden or purchased at the market with proper storage.
Remove any discolored leaves and clip the bottom of the stems off at an angle.
Prepare basil the same way but store it on the kitchen counter out of direct sunlight.
Change the water daily and remove any discolored leaves that develop. Your herbs can last for several weeks when stored this way.
Gently wash the herbs in cool, not cold, water and pat them dry when you’re ready to use them.
A bit more information: Ensure year-round freshness with a windowsill herb garden. Grow your favorite herbs in a sunny window or under artificial lights. Then harvest just what you need for your upcoming meal.
