Storage for Basil, Parsley and Cilantro:

These herbs can be treated like a bouquet of flowers: trim the ends, place in a glass with an inch or so of water, and leave on counter at room temperature. (The leaves will turn black if refrigerated). The herb will remain fresh for anywhere from a few days to a week.

  • Basil: Use it fresh in all kinds of Italian dishes!

  • Parsley Great for stocks and salads.

  • Cilantro: A staple in Mexican cooking

  • Dill: Goes well when grilled or baked with seafood or paired with veggies.

    • The leaves wilt quickly upon harvesting, but this will not affect flavor. Spritz whole stems lightly with a fine spray of water, wrap loosely in paper towels, and place in a plastic bag. Store in the vegetable bin of your refrigerator. It should last up to a week and perhaps even longer.

  • Fennel: incredibly versatile, fennel is good roasted, grilled, sautéed, added to stocks, and the list goes on.

    • Should keep well in vegetable crisper. Best if eaten within 4 days of receipt.
