Herbs are more delicate than veggies. They need to be stored and cared for properly! They should be kept moist, cool but not cold, and given lots of breathing room.
Steps to get the best out of your herbs:
- When you open the herb packet, take the herbs out and dry off the leaves (this stops them from rotting). If you have a salad spinner, give the herbs a quick spin to dry them. If you don't have a salad spinner, lay out a long strip of paper towel and roll the herb bundles until they feel mostly dry.
- If you’re not ready to use them just yet, roll each bundle in its own length of paper towel, twice around. The towel will stall the refrigerator's drying effect, but won't trap moisture against the leaves like plastic.
- To sneak a few more days out of our herbs, we like to stick the stems in a glass of water, which should be changed every couple days.
- Keep your herbs at the front of the fridge, so you won't forget they're there and so they are not too close to the cooling unit, which will make them wilt!
