How to store fresh herbs in your refrigerator

When you purchase fresh herbs, they often come in those plastic containers, or in a mishmash bunch tied together with a twist tie, that you end up putting in a plastic bag. But obviously, neither of these ways are the best way to stir your herbs to ensure that the last as long as possible in your refrigerator. Here is how to keep your fresh herbs fresher longer and best of all, it is super easy.

Simply grab a tall water class until about halfway with water, and then put the stems and the water just as you would with flowers. You need to ensure that no leaves are sitting below the water surface, as they can turn the water mucky and promote bacteria. Then take a plastic bag, or Ziploc baggie you can reuse for the specific purpose, and place the bag over top of the top of the herbs, but do not seal it as you need the air to still circulate.

You will also need to change the water every day or two, and again so that it doesn't get bacteria ridden. Your herbs will last for at least a week or two, much longer than if you'd left them in a plastic grocery bag or the plastic container.
