I sometimes buy big bunches of cilantro, basil or mint from grocery stores. As all of us know, cilantro or basil don't keep fresh for longer time. If you buy a bunch of cilantro from the store, and keep it in the fridge as is, it will start drying(dehydrating) after 3-4 days.
Some people crush the herbs and freeze them in ice cube trays. I usually like to use fresh herb leaves in most of the dishes I cook,so freezing them is not an option for me.To keep the herbs fresh for longer time, heres what you can do.
