So I was just cleaning out the refrigerator when I came across this pitiful bunch of store-bought cilantro. I started to throw it away and then stopped myself. I saw on some website or another that you can stand greens up in a pitcher with a little water in the bottom and they will stay fresh a lot longer in the frig. Hmmm…. Would the same trick save this little bunch of herbs? There’s only one way to find out. So I lopped off the ends and stuck them in the jar with a little water. I’ll update this post when I have results.
If a picture is worth a thousand words, here you go! Twenty-four hours later, my poor wilted cilantro isn’t great, but it is a lot better, which bodes well for the next bunch that I buy. That is if I can’t get it to regrow like a recent article I read suggests.
