Fresh herbs are one of my favorite cooking luxuries! When a friend gave me some fresh cut herbs from her garden a few weeks ago, she passed along a tip for storing them, which really worked great!
Store fresh herbs cut-stem-down in a glass of water in the fridge. They stay beautifully fresh for a week or longer!
At the grocery store, I don't usually venture beyond fresh parsley or cilantro, so having this bouquet of thyme, oregano, savory, peppermint, and Spanish lavendar was a real treat!
More tips for spicing up your food:
Freshly ground cumin (is affordable and makes the best taco meat!)
Finding affordable paprika (NOT at the grocery or bulk food store!)
Tips for fresher spices (love the reader comments on this!)
