Healthy Tip for the Weekend

20140801_113426I love fresh herbs! And I enjoy fresh basil on many dishes. But unless I buy it right before I cook dinner it would always go bad (what a money waster!).

The frig is too cold (large brown/black spots) and the house is too hot (shrivels up). So….

I discovered that if I wrapped the basil package (and other fresh herb packages) up in a dish towel and put it in the frig it would keep it the perfect temperature.Making it last for 3-4 days, instead of 1.

Stop by next Friday for another healthy tip! 🙂

  1. Hi, Savannah. Another way to keep herbs fresh longer? Remove the lowest leaves and place them in water, like flowers. This can pretty-up the counter and you can enjoy the smell too. Cat owner’s beware…kitties might go in for a nibble. Happy healthy eating!
