Kitchen Hack: Preserving Fresh Herbs

But the most frequently used kitchen tip in our arsenal is keeping those tender herbs, such as parsley and cilantro, fresh in our fridge for weeks.

Yes! I said weeks. I love fresh herbs and use parsley and cilantro so frequently that after years of throwing them away my husband tested different ways to store them until he found the magic method.


Keep your herbs covered completely to create the perfect chilled environment. The cover keeps in the water and builds condensation on the bag. This helps to keep your herbs fresh and crisp for weeks.

If you follow these simple instructions, you can keep your herbs fresh and crisp for up to 2 weeks.&


I have even had them in my fridge for 3 weeks once as we went on vacation and left them in accidentally. They were still crisp and just needed a little water added to the container to perk them up.

I hope you enjoy this tip!



With love from our simple kitchen to yours.
