This mind-blowing trick for How to Store Herbs will change your life! The herbs will easily last for 2 weeks and often 3 or even 4 weeks in your fridge | imagelicious.com #cookingtips #kitchentips #herbs #howtostoreherbs
First step is optional, but highly recommended. Wash the herbs and dry them thoroughly!
If the first step is omitted, then just let them dry fully from the moisture that they had at the store.
Now, get two layers of paper towel and put herbs on it.
And here's the mind-blowing part. Place the herbs and paper towel into a dry plastic bag, blow into it and tie the bag like a balloon.
Keep this "balloon" in the fridge.
IMPORTANT: Every 2-3 days, you'll notice that there's condensation inside the bag and the paper towel is damp. Place new dry paper towel and turn the bag inside out, so that it's dry inside. Make the "balloon" and repeat again in a few days.
This method takes a lot of space in the fridge, but it's amazing how long I can store the herbs this way. They don't rot, they don't go bad, they are still green and flavourful (although limp) in 3 (and sometimes 4) weeks.
