No rigid rules, labels or dogmas.... just REAL food, for your body, mind & soul!

Need help with keeping herbs like cilantro, basil, etc. fresh in the frig. I buy 2-3 bunches at a time but after 3 or 4 days they wilt. What can I do to keep them fresh a few days more or am I expecting to much?

oops...hit the button too early. Also instead of putting them in the fridge i put them, in water ( like flowers) and change the water often. Works very very well for basil.

I wrap them in paper towels and sometimes on top of that inside a plastic bag.

But in a garage sale lately I found a plastic container, a rectangle box that has inside a plastic tray and they keep well. Hope that helps!

I have used the plastic bag over the glass method and it works.
