Storing herbs in the refrigerator

Tip of the Week

How do you keep fresh herbs alive?!  One way, possibly the best way, is to wrap herbs in a damp paper towel and place in a zip lock bag.  Make sure it’s a damp paper towel, not wet so no mold grows.  This will absorb moisture from the herbs, preventing them from wilting too quickly.  You are also able to store fresh leafy greens this way, wrapped in paper towels!  

Another way is to store herbs in a mason jar, placed like flowers.  Fill the jar with water and keep it in the fridge uncovered.  The only downside is that the jar can take up room in the fridge. 

If you’re in a pinch, like I usually am, simply keep the herbs in the produce bag from the grocery store.
