One of my favorite ways to store fresh herbs is in vases on the kitchen counter. Simply rinse the bundle under running water, give it a shake to dry, then trim the ends and place into small containers with water. This way, your herbs stay fresh longer while adding a splash of color to the kitchen and are ready to be harvested when cooking.

I have an outside raised herb garden and bringing in sprigs makes the kitchen smell good. And I don’t have to remind myself to add some herbs to my cooking. They’re right in front of me on the counter!
That’s the spirit Claremary! Thanks for sharing your story 🙂
