Fool-Proof Tips for Storing Fresh Herbs

December 10, 2014 5:03 pm

You water your windowsill or balcony herb garden on a strict schedule, and you care for each little plant with the utmost precision. Because you take such good care of your pots full of rosemary, basil, and cilantro, you want to ensure that they stay fresh long after you trim them. Here are five smart tips for properly storing fresh herbs.

  1. Snip them from the bottom. Instead of cutting only the parts of the herbs that you’ll use in your cooking, such as the leaves, snip each one from the bottom of the stem to prevent wilting.
  2. Don’t rinse them until you’re ready to cook. Though you may be tempted to rinse your herbs to rid them of dirt or tiny insects, hold off until you’re ready to actually use them. This will help them to stay fresh for longer.
  3. Store in a jar of water. Fill a glass jar halfway with water, then place the stems of your herbs inside with the tops extended outward.
  4. Protect them from cold temperatures. If you store your herbs in the refrigerator, be sure to first cover them with a secure plastic bag. Also read up on which herbs prefer cooler temperatures, such as cilantro, for example.
  5. Change the water. The above tips will keep your herbs fresh for quite a while, provided that you change the water once it becomes brown or discolored.
