Are you having trouble preserving your summer herbs? Are they not lasting as long as you want them to? Chef Alex has got you covered! Here's the best way to store your summer herbs to give them the longest shelf life. 

  • Wet a paper towel.
  • Wring it out and lay it on a flat surface. 
  • Place the herbs you want to store at the bottom.
  • Roll up like a burrito. 
  • Place in a plastic zipper bag and store in the fridge. 

Quick, easy and simple!
