How To Store & Prepare Cilantro For Recipe Applications

Once fresh cilantro has been chosen & purchased, it’s important to store it properly so that it remains bright, vibrant & appealing. Select only the perkiest bunches. If they have been spritzed with water, hold the stems & shake away as much of the excess as possible. Dry the leaves well at home & store loosely in a plastic bag.

The Technique

Hold the cilantro stems under running water to throughly rinse the leaves. Grab a tightly packed handful of the herb & place it on a cutting board. Run a chef knife through the leaves until the desired size is reached. If it’s chopped very finely, gently blot a paper towel over the surface to remove some of the excessive moisture & use as directed in specific recipe applications.
