Keep Herbs Fresh Longer

I love fresh herbs. Who doesn’t? But since I live by myself, I rarely cook enough to use up the herbs before they go bad. To make them last a little longer is very simple – just treat them like flowers. Trim the ends and put them in water. You can keep them on the countertop or, if you have a cat who loves to eat anything with even the smallest resemblance to lettuce like I do, you can keep them in the fridge.
