Living here in the wild, wild west (I never get tired of saying that!)…cilantro is a bit of a staple. Like salt and pepper, or butter on a baked potato. You can’t beat it for any Mexican or New Mexican dish.
My unfortunate experience has been— I buy it one evening, and less than 24 hours later (usually less), it is wilted and ready for the trash.
Here’s how you do it. First, snip off the ends of your cilantro with some kitchen scissors, much like the stems of fresh cut flowers.
Then, place them in a jar of water. Try not to let any of the leaves remain in the water
Next, take some plastic wrap and cover the cilantro.
Store it in the fridge.
For a day, or two or three or even four.
This is mine after four days in the fridge…..
I know! Can you believe it? I love this tip. It is still fresh and ready for the next batch of homemade salsa.
Enjoy this fresh savory herb even longer!
