Basil does best at room temperature, not in the refrigerator. I treat them like fresh flowers and trim the stem just a bit and place them in a glass of water on my counter top. This glass of basil started out limp and lifeless. After about a day in the glass each leaf crisped up and looks fresh again. This is a great way to prolong the life of your basil. Give it a try!
I love buying green onion because I know that I will get about 3-4 more uses out of each stem. Cut off and use only the green parts of the onion and put the stem in a glass of water. The green leaves will continue to grow to full size!
Talk about getting your money’s worth, huh?
Make sure to change the water every few days, when it gets murky. Enjoy watching your onions grow!
