Don’t let the cup fool you

… these herbs aren’t happy.

This is the oregano and tarragon that arrived last Friday. I placed the bundle in the refrigerator in the smiley cup, with a little bit of water, but then didn’t get around to using either of the herbs over the weekend. As you can see, the bunch looks wilted and sad today. Very sad.

Any tips for keeping herbs fresh? Or should I just hang and dry them next time and call it good?

  1. Did you snip the ends like with flowers? Also, you can try just wrapping them in damp paper towel and putting them in a plastic baggy.

  2. The tougher leaves like tarragon, thyme,or rosemary I put them in a plastic bag and put it in the freezer. The leafy herbs do well wrapped in paper towel and in a bag in the refrigerator. If I have a lot of leafy herbs, I dry them on a cooling rack on the table or hang them somewhere.
