How do I store fresh herbs?

Storing Fresh Herbs

When storing fresh, culinary herbs it is important to stop them from drying out. Bunches of herbs such as parsley or coriander can be placed in a glass of water. Place in a light, airy position, but out of direct sunlight, where these herbs will wilt.

Alternatively, cover the cut stems of the herbs with a damp tissue and enclose the whole bunch of herbs in a plastic bag. Keep in the bottom of the fridge for a day or two.

Remember that herbs begin to deteriorate as soon as they have been picked. For the freshest taste, use as soon as possible.
