Fresh Herb Storage

Hello Members,

What is that aroma emanating from your box this week? Maybe it is the fresh sage and thyme we picked first thing for maximum potency! Perhaps you are interested in keeping these bunches fresh for just a few days until your next feast. In that case, take off the elastic  and store them on your kitchen counter in a fresh water, as you would a flower bouquet. 

If you would like to store your sage and thyme for longer simply spread them out in a basket, on a rack or a screen in a airy place away from direct sunlight.  Let the plants dry for a week or more before you transfer them into a sealed container. Enjoy the dried herbs well into next year.
