The Best Ways To Keep Cilantro Fresh
While cilantro is not as delicate to store as other herbs like basil, it does need a little attention to make a bunch stay fresh, and with the right care, you can keep cilantro fresh for months in your fridge. The key is deciding whether you want the whole, fresh leaves or the fresh taste of chopped cilantro.
Those who want to use the whole leaves to garnish dishes or to tear them into larger pieces should opt to store a bunch of the herb in a container with water inside the fridge. By using this method, cilantro can stay good for a month, although you will need to keep an eye on the leaves and stems to ensure they stay as fresh as possible.
If you plan to cook with cilantro or have time to allow cubes of the chopped herb to thaw, you can store it in the freezer. Start by washing and thoroughly drying your cilantro leaves, and then chop up the leaves and place small spoonfuls into a clean, empty ice tray with a neutral-flavored oil — or just water — to freeze them.
