Of course the best way to keep herbs fresh is to grow them yourself and pick them when you need it. Unfortunately, I don't get very much direct sunlight in my place and every attempt to grow my own herbs has failed, so instead I buy bunches of them from the grocery store or farmers market. However, I found that within a day or two of sitting in my refrigerator they start to wilt.
This Instructable will show you a quick and easy way to store herbs in your refrigerator so that they stay fresh for well over a week.
Step 1: Materials
-a container such as a jar, glass or mug
-scissors or knife
-plastic bag -I use the thin bags that they have in the produce section of a grocery store
-bunch of herbs that you wish to store such as parsley, cilantro, or any other herb still on its stem
Step 2: Prepare Herbs
Cut tips off the ends of the stem, about 1cm or so.
Add water to container, not all the way to top, leave some room for displacement.
Step 3: Place Herbs in Container
in refrigerator. The plastic bag should remain open at the bottom to let air in.
Step 4: Enjoy Your Fresh Herbs
If you would like, change the water after a week so they last longer.
