To keep your fresh herbs, well, fresh, snip the ends and store them in a glass jar with enough water to touch the stems but not enough to touch the leaves. Gone are the days of storing herbs in the refrigerator. Most refrigerators are too cold for herbs that are grown out in the sun. This trick works well for parsley, thyme, rosemary, basil and mint. Keep them on your kitchen counter so you are reminded to use them. They also look nice as a kitchen bouquet.
