How to Snip Fresh Herbs
To easily snip leafy fresh herbs, such as parsley and cilantro, place the leaves in a small glass measuring cup or small bowl. Hold the cup in one hand, and, holding kitchen scissors in your other hand, snip the leaves right in the cup.
How to Store Fresh Herbs
Keep fresh herbs handy for use in preparing your favorite recipes. Chop the herbs, then place in separate freezer-weight food storage bags. Freeze up to 3 months before using as desired.
