Tip of the Week: Store Fresh Herbs in Water

Store fresh herbs in a vase or jar full of water in the refrigerator to make them last longer.

Just cut off the ends of the herbs like you would a bouquet, and place them in a jar or glass full of water. Cover them with a plastic bag or plastic wrap, and they'll last as long as a week in the fridge. This way, you'll make the most out of every trip to the farmers market.

    A week?! Try infinity! At least for Basil - It has started to spot roots and continues to grow and stay fresh!
