I love fresh parsley. I wash it, air dry it and store it in paper towels in a plastic bag in the frig.
I use some of it and either out of laziness or forgetfulness, it languishes in there, and I have to throw the rest out. This week I decided to try something new. I washed it, dried on paper towels and stored it like flowers in a pitcher of water on the counter. I had thoughts of setting it on the shelf of the frig, but thought it might get knocked over. I change the water every day and it's been there for four days now and looks as fresh as the first day. I've used it every day for cooking or garnish and it looks like it's going to last long enough for me to use it up. It looks pretty on the counter, reminds me that it's there, and it's easy to cut a sprig or bunch. Thought I'd share that. Anybody else have any little tricks to extend the life of produce? I know there are probably old threads like this, but thought I'd start a new one.
