Yesterday I posted a list of fresh fruits and vegetables and the best way to store them.
One of the things I also buy that go bad quickly are fresh cut herbs. We make our own fresh salsa and we go through a lot of cilantro…. We have found that the best way to keep them fresh is to treat them like flowers.
Simply make a fresh cut to the stems and pop into a glass of water.
You can keep green onions the same way, but you don’t need to cut the ends. Just put them directly in water. The herbs keep for a few days and the onions keep so long that they start growing!***Updated to add: I leave them on the counter, but I am pretty sure that you could keep them in the fridge too.
On another note: My friend Rose was just commenting that I’ve been all food and no crafts lately. Well, I actually just did a craft project, but it was for Craft Gossip. You can see it here. Here’s a sneak peek at what I made for them using an ordinary flower pot and modeling clay.
