How to make herbs last twice as long

August 28th, 2008 § 0 comments

Nothing pisses me off more than plucking or opening a packet of herbs only to have it wilt in 24 hours. After consulting with a cooking wizard, I discovered that there is a way to make your herbs last for a week in full bloom and it was surprisingly easy.

1. Get a glass, fill it one thirds with water.

2. Cut half an inch off the stems of your herbs. Put the herbs in the water.

3. Get a small plastic bag and fit it over all the herbs, making sure it covers at least the lip of the glass.

You’re done. Leave the glass in a spot that gets some sunlight. The little ‘uns will be working so hard on getting rid of their own carbon dioxide that they’ll survive for longer and you’ll be happier.
