Storing herbs for a few days
Fresh herbs taste best, no doubt about it! If that's not possible,
wash them, pat them dry and wrap them in a plastic bag or place on
a piece of damp kitchen paper inside a plastic container that you
should put in the vegetable compartment. You can store delicate
herbs such as chervil, mint, dill, chives, lemon balm and lovage
like this for up to five days, hardier herbs such
as rosemary, sage and thyme will last for up to ten days.
Tip: don't put your herbs in water after buying. If you do, they
will tend to lose their nutrients more quickly and wilt because
their metabolic processes continue to run. If you need to store
herbs for longer periods,
you can dry them, freeze them or put them in oil.
