If you’ve ever opened the fridge and reached for the asparagus, or the fresh basil you bought at the grocer, only to find both wilted and looking less-than-edible, then this story is for you.
Considering most foods cost a pretty penny at the supermarket, there’s nothing worse than realising the hard-earned cash you spent on groceries is already going down the drain, and you haven’t even used the ingredients yet.
There’s a simple storage tip that can keep your herbs and asparagus fresh and perky in your fridge, and it’s easy to do.
Leave the rubber bands on your asparagus and cut off the bottom one inch of the stalk. Fill a glass jar with one to two inches of water. Pop the asparagus or your hers in the jar and store it in the fridge.
If you don’t plan on cooking with the ingredients within the new two to three days, place a plastic snack bag over the tops of the asparagus or herbs to retain moisture and make them last longer.
