The Best Way to Store Fresh Herbs in the Fridge {Video}

Love fresh herbs?  Here’s the best way to store fresh herbs in fridge!

Hi guys!

Happy tax day.  I know the rest of the world may dread today, but this lovely day feels like a holiday for me every year because I get the Hubs back.   I’m doing a happy dance.


You know what else makes me happy… fresh herbs!  They are such a great way to bring flavor into a dish without adding a lot of butter or oil.   Using them can absolutely transform your cooking!  I recently figured out the the best way to store fresh herbs in fridge and had to share.

I used to actually not use a lot of fresh herbs outside of gardening season because I’d buy them and they went bad so quickly.  You know that yucky green slimy mess that happens if you just leave them in the bag you got them in?

Come on…. I know you do! 🙂

It seemed like they would not last more than three days in the fridge and I’d always waste them.  But now look at this gorgeous fresh herbs and have been sitting in my fridge for over a week!  Isn’t that amazing and don’t you want to know what I did!?!

Well… I thought you might!  This healthy hack is too awesome not to share so I made a little video demonstration for you…  here’s my video on the best way to store fresh herbs in fridge.

I’m  not sure it could be any easier!  And no joke my herbs last three to four times as long now.  This works especially good for cilantro and parsley, which are two fresh herbs I always keep on hand.  They go great with so many things that I cook and life is prettier with a little garnish too.

So TRUST ME on this one!  You must try this healthy hack about how to store fresh herbs in the fridge at home and let me know how it goes.

In the meantime, I also decided to link to some of my favorite Running in a Skirt recipes that use fresh herbs!  This will make it super easy to use all those fresh herbs from your fridge in some delicous… mainly spring and summer inspired recipes.  I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

    So awesome Julie. I read about this before but only did it once or twice so I’m going to get back into it again. Nothing makes recipes taste better than fresh herbs and they always go bad so fast so I need these hacks!

      It totally works too! Let me know what you think.

      Yay! I love planting for the season. Hoping to do mine when we get back from the Bahamas.

    I did not know this trick! I can’t wait to try it!

    Hey Julie – thanks for this tip? Wondering if you wash them first before you store them in tent in refrigerator?

    I’m guessing that you wash them as you need them?? Thanks, Teresa

      Hi Teresa! I don’t because I don’t want them to get too soggy- that can make them spoil. If you really want to, just make sure you get the leaves dry before putting them in the fridge!

    Great tip, Julie! I always have the issue of “slimy” herbs after a few days. Will definitely give this a try!

  8. Ah who knew! thanks for sharing

    I love fresh herbs, but I don’t think I’m allowed around them anymore for their own safety!

      haha! You tried so hard! You can still get bunches at the store!

    I never have fresh herbs. I told Aaron I wanted to make a garden but we haven’t gotten there yet. Maybe next year, ha. I truthfully use the herbs in the spice containers. Yikes!

    • JulieWunder April 19, 2017 at 8:42 pm - Reply

      I do sometimes too, especially in winter when I have to buy the herbs. No worries! 🙂
