Repost from a friend out west, Aarti Paarti, with an interesting tip for keeping cilantro fresh in the refrigerator for two weeks. I’m trying it now, but it seems like it might work better than my current method, which is to store flower-style in a glass with the stems submerged in a small amount of water, then cover the glass with a fabric produce bag and keep in the door of the fridge. My method seems to encourage blackened slimey gunk near the stems.
I’m not one to keep a lot of paper towels around though, so I’ll probably use a cloth napkin or kitchen towel instead with Aarti’s method. What are other people doing?
