How To: Store Fresh Basil

Posted by Laura

We have been thoroughly enjoying our farm share this summer and benefiting greatly from it. My heart, home and husband has been oh so happy with the abundance of fresh fruits, veggies, herbs and flowers.

While we've been enjoying these crops, we've also been a bit challenged with how to preserve them for prolonged use. Here's one way I've been storing our fresh basil. This was picked 2 weeks ago!

It's as simple as cutting the stems and popping them in a jar of water, putting a plastic bag over the top...

...and storing in a cabinet, away from direct sun.  Don't forget to change the water every few days.
