Here’s a neat tip I read tonight in Rodale’s Book of Hints, Tips & Everyday Wisdom:
“Fresh herbs with long stems, such as dill, parsley, and basil, will keep in a tall cup of water in the refrigerator for three to four weeks. Cover the herbs loosely with an upside-down plastic bag and change the water every four days.”
The book also recommends that it’s best to pick your fresh herbs in the morning, after the dew has dried but before the sun is hot, for the best flavor.
