Tips for keeping your herbs fresh

The best way to keep fresh herbs

We love fresh herbs as they have a great, mild taste and and give that certain something to our meals. Fresh herbs even make everything look nicer!

As we are using a lot of fresh herbs in our Avocado Boxes we've been frequently asked how to store them. 

There are many methods but for us at Avocado there are two techniques, which we can approve. 

Method 1: Fresh water every day

Wash the herbs in a bowl filled with fresh water. Snip the ends and store them upright in a glass with fresh water. Change the water every day.

Method 2: Wrap the herbs in paper towels

Wash the herbs in a bowl filled with fresh water. Wrap the herbs in a dry paper towel and store them in a zipper-lock bag in the vegetable shelf of your fridge. 


If you don't want to use the herbs within the next days: wash, dry and chop them. Store them in an airtight container in your freezer.
