If you read the earlier post about putting the wilted cilantro in water, you know that I found that it survives better in the frig when you put the stems in water. To add to that post is this new info: Cut the brown withered stems before placing them in water.
Also, if you want to start cilantro in your window, according to the internet you can put them in water on the windowsill and they will develop roots.
We shall see, as I bought cilantro to make salsa tonight and I’m going to give it a try. (No, I won’t give you my salsa recipe. It isn’t perfected, yet.)
What am I out? $.30?
I’d like to point out to those of you who haven’t thought about it, that I’m actually saving a lot of money by growing my own herbs in the window. Sure it isn’t much at this point, but it adds up really quickly, especially if you’re buying the fresh herbs instead of the dried ones. For me, that money goes for any number of things, but if you don’t have anything to spend a little extra money on, far be it for me to tell you how to save a buck.
