I buy herbs such as coriander leaves, parsley, and mint quite often.
Leaves such as pandan and curry leaves can be stored by air drying them for a day to make sure all moisture is gone and then stored in a clean dry bottle lined with tissue at the bottom and then stored in the fridge. This will keep for almost 2 weeks.
For years I have been trying to find out a way to store herbs such as parsley and coriander leaves. First I tried my sister's method by storing them in a damp kitchen cloth but that didnt work. I tried freezing them but they changed colour , although it does work well with kaffir lime leaves.
I came across this tip on DK's Ultimate book of cooking hints and tips, and it actually works!!!. So here is how to do it.
Fill a small glass or bottle half way up with water. Cut your herb stems at an angle , leave coriander leaves along with their roots. Place them in the container with water, making sure the stems or roots touch the water.
Cover with a small plastic bag, such as a zip lock bag or any other small bag. and then place in the fridge .Change the water every two days .
How have u all been , sorry as usual am way behind all my favorite bloggers.
By the way did anyone see the meat dress worn by Lady Gaga? I am not a crazed fan of hers I would rather listen to her songs than watch them. wont go to the length of buying a record of downloading any .Nor am I someone who stalks celebrities although I like to check out now and then about new movies coming out and award cremonies. Even though I didnt watch the show my brother in law brought the dress to my attention. Seriously what was she thinking!!! I mean imagine sitting next to a person who is wearing a dress made of raw meat, eyew!
