I wanted to share with you how to keep your fresh cilantros fresh and last in the fridge for over a week.
Simply trim the ends and place them in a glass of water. You can keep it out on the counter if you use them a lot. I placed mine in the door of the fridge. These photos of the cilantros is a 9 days old and still fresh. After a week, I will trim the ends off again, just as you would flowers to make them last longer
I love fresh greens but they weren't lasting long in the fridge before you could use them.
So, I came up with this idea!
This is a photo of the kale looking great over a week now. You can also put parsley bundles in water as well.
Also, when buying spinach in the clear container, take a knife and poke air holes all around the container they come in. I have found this will keep the spinach from wilting and going bad. My spinach has lasted over a week now as well.
A funny story about my grandsons who are 4 & 6. Our daughter was trying to get them to eat spinach but they wouldn't touch it. She told them that Popeye eats spinach and it makes him strong.
That got their attention and they became very curious "who is Popeye"? She pulled Popeye up on her phone and cast it to the screen. After watching one Popeye, they said "mom we need some of that spinach." They now watch Popeye with a bowl of spinach in front of them eating every leaf and asking for more.
Have a wonderful weekend!
Love to hear from you as always.
