Food Fact: Keeping Basil Fresh

To extend the life of fresh herbs like basil, remove them from package (or discard rubber bands) and rinse them in cool water. Spin-dry or blot with paper towels, then loosely roll up in a length of dry paper towels. Place in a resealable plastic bag and refrigerate in the crisper- they'll stay sprightly for 3 to 5 days.
