Storing fresh herbs

If you have had a chance to view some of my savory recipes, you will notice, I have a strong like for herbs (cilantro, dill are my fav but also like parsley, basil, and mint (especially mint for fresh tea, yum)..). . Like, a dangerous like on the border of love. I am constantly purchasing herbs because they just don’t stay fresh long. I once heard of storing fresh herbs in jars and am so happy I tried it few months ago. Fresh herbs for weeks and weeks and they look like they were just picked from the garden (they said even up to several months, but herbs never last that long here so didn’t try it). I wish I can credit the person behind this GENIUS idea, but, don’t remember the source.

You don’t necessarily need to use canning Mason jar, if you save jars from marinara or jam, those can be used as well (please tell me I’m not the only one that re-uses those, like all of them).

You don’t want to PACK them in, just lightly fill:)..

Ingredients:

Herbs (I have tried cilantro, dill, parsley and basil)

Mason jars

Directions:

Wash herbs under cold water. Lay them out on either a paper towel or kitchen towel and pat dry. I do mine on a paper towel and just keep changing the paper towel until it is no longer wet.

wash herbs and dry

Wash your jar(s) and lid(s) with soap and water and dry. Add the herbs to the jars and refrigerate. THAT IS IT FOLKS!!. A.M.A.Z.I.N.G.! I love, love this!! When you need herbs open you fancy jar, get the desired amount and put the rest back in the fridge.
