Cilantro in a jar of water
Powdered Sugar Is The Unexpected Way To Revive Wilted Cilantro
To revive your wilted cilantro, simply stir a teaspoon of powdered sugar into a jar of cold water until it's dissolved and place a bunch of cilantro in it, stem first.
Place the cilantro and sugar water mixture in the fridge overnight and it will perk up, returning to its original freshness and extending its shelf life for another day or two.
The idea behind this method is that sugar water revives herbs by feeding them. Cilantro may not have its roots, but its stems will still absorb the mixture to get enough energy.
