Storing Fresh Basil - Where Did I Go Wrong?

Lila | Aug 17, 2004 11:23 AM

Went to the Farmer's Market this weekend and bought a nice big bunch of basil. I plopped it in a large waterglass filled with water and put it uncovered in the fridge, thinking it would keep just like flowers do.

Well, it turned into a slimy, shriveled mess. In the future, how can you store basil so it lasts a couple of days?
