Kraft Kitchens Tips

Creative Leftovers
Toss remaining 1/2 cup pesto with 1/2 lb. hot cooked pasta.
If using wooden skewers, soak skewers in water for 30 min. before using to assemble kabobs to prevent them from burning on the grill.
How to Store Long-Stemmed Fresh Herbs
Place long-stemmed fresh herbs, such as parsley, cilantro and dill, in a tall glass with the stem ends down. Fill with an inch of cold water; make sure no leaves are under the water. Cover the leaves loosely with a plastic bag and refrigerate until ready to use, changing the water every 2 days. Herbs should stay vibrant and fresh for about 5 days.
