I have a confession. For years. Years. I’ve underestimated the powerful flavor savors that are fresh herbs. I’ve always gone for dried herbs for both cost and convenience purposes. And don’t get me wrong, I still use dried herbs and they’re great to have on hand. But fresh herbs really do bring something special to the table. But it always really bothered me that I would spend $2 on fresh herbs, use 15 cents worth for one recipe and then they’d go bad within a day!
I have a solution my friends. Here’s a great way to make the most out of fresh herbs and keep cooking all week long with tasty fresh goodness.
Garden Fresh Herbs
- Snag yourself some mason jars from your local hardware store.
Or, just use some regular glassware!
- Fill about 1/3 of the way up with water.
- Stick your herbs in and viola!
So there you have it. Fresh cilantro, parsley, whatever for days y’all. These herbs will stay fresh for up to one whole week! Enjoy, what recipes will you try with your new makeshift herb garden?
