How to store fresh herbs

Regardless of how carefully you select or refrigerate fresh cut herbs, they are highly perishable. Basil and cilantro will lasts about a week on average in the fridge. Parsley and oregano will keep A little longer as they are a little tougher.  Thyme and rosemary will last a couple of weeks as they are more resilient. 

Cool freezer tricks

To preserve fresh herbs longer, chop them up and place in ice cube trays with stock or water. Believe it or not, you can freeze them then transfer the herb cubes into a plastic bag and keep frozen. I add the actual cubes to my soups on the stove or in the crock pot. When you have Italian herbs and you're making sauce, just drop the cubes in your sauce!
