So when you get fresh herbs how do you store them? Mine typically are just picked fresh from the garden but when I do purchase herbs they go straight to a jar similar to the one above. I just cut the stalks with scissors, put them in water, and they will perk right back up. This allows me to just cut and use as needed over the course of a week changing the water and cutting the stalks frequently.
You can see the above cilantro has begun to flower and once it goes to flower you can still use it but the flavor is not going to be intense. I believe the above is past its prime only now to be used as a centerpiece for dinner.
What fresh herbs are you growing and in love with right now?
