Check it out! I have discovered a really great way to keep herbs bought at the supermarket fresher, longer. I think the key is washing, discarding damaged/old looking leaves, and carefully drying them with a paper towel before putting them in your jar. At first I thought it was a bit ridiculous to have such a large jar but it fits on my bottom shelf pretty nicely, even with all the excess food that having my mother stay calls for (we are foodies together). Here's the article I read which suggested this in the first place, with further suggestions for other fresh cut herbs.
Here's the cilantro we bought for some Asian flavoured salads I have been making. Yum.
