Care of Culinary Herbs
Store herbs in either the plastic "clamshell" container that the herbs come in or in small platic resealable bags. When you are ready to use them, first gently wash your herbs to cleanse of any debris before cooking. After gently washing, dry your herbs either by lightly gently shaking off the excess water from them and pressing lightly with a paper towel. Some herbs, like Basil are very fragile and bruise easily, while others, like rosemary and thyme are very hearty.
