storing herbs for optimal use
if you're anything like me, you hate having to do it but have to throw out food or herbs that have gone bad (also why we built a compost bin). to avoid having to do this with herbs, be sure to properly store them. after washing the herbs in cool water, dampen a paper towel and wrap it around the herbs. you can just use this method and stick them in the fridge like so, but I prefer to also use a large ziplock baggy to ensure freshness. now your herbs can last longer in your fridge! happy cooking!
