How To Store & Use  Fresh Basil

Basil leaves are tender so it’s best to pluck them from plants just before using them. However bouquets of snipped basil may be placed in a bit of water & stored on the countertop several days in a bright location in your kitchen. If purchasing basil from the market, opt for plants if available or keep the leaves in the container they were purchased in up to 2 days in the refrigerator.

Basil leaves have a tendency to wilt quickly. Add them as a garnish to plates just before presentation to guests. When using them over baked or sautéed foods, scatter the small leaves over warm & not piping hot items to ensure they do not turn brown.
