Having fresh herbs in the house is always a good idea but they don’t stay fresh for a long time, but when you store them properly you can have the next best thing! This method will give you fresh herbs for weeks!

How to store herbs-

All you need is your favorite herbs and some jars, I use mason jars but you can use any jar with a lid!

  • Wash the herbs under cold water and lay them out on a paper towel or kitchen towel to pat dry.
  • Wash and dry the jars, add the herbs into the jar and close with the lid. (TIP: Do NOT pack the herbs in the jars, you just want to light fill the jars with herbs.)
  • Refrigerate.
