Storage Tips

Wrap loosely in plastic wrap and place in the warmest part of the refrigerator; one of the compartments in the door works perfectly. Do not wrap tightly or the trapped moisture may cause them to mold prematurely; many people like to add a crumpled paper towel to the bag as a safeguard. Do not rinse the herbs until just before using.
