Keep Cilantro (and Other Herbs?) Fresh Longer
From the blog Vegetable Gardener, an experiment to find the best way to keep cilantro from getting mushy and disgusting before you can use it. It might be worth trying this method with other herbs, too.
Grow your own if you can, and just harvest as much as you need to use at one time, but if you need to rely on farmers markets or the grocery for your herb supply, this may be just the information you're looking for.
For 32 years my husband and I ran a small retail garden center in Ohio. We keep a flock of chickens for eggs, and we make our own wine from kits and from fruit that grows on our 8 acres. In the spring, summer and fall you'll find me outside in my gardens, and in the winter I'll be inside, cooking, baking, working on my scrapbooks or reading.
