Extending the Life of Fresh Cilantro?

opinionatedchef | Aug 21, 2010 09:53 PM

It seems that every time i buy a bunch of fresh cilantro, it goes bad if i don't use it in 2 days. A few leaves go bad in the middle of the bunch and /or the stems are bruised where the band circled them a few days it's worthless. even after i put the roots in a jar of water and the jar in a closed plastic bag. Today i tried removing the band, soaking the bunch, removing all the bad stuff,putting the roots in a jar of water, letting the leaves air dry, and putting it in a bag. We'll see what happens.

what do you do and how long will the bunch keep? thanks much for your help.
