Storing Fresh Rosemary

Baggie containing a rolled towel with a sprig of rosemary peeking out

I love getting fresh herbs in my CSA. They’re always bigger and more impressive than the herbs I grow and, because they’re freshly cut, they inspire me to use them up quickly. Depending on how hot the weather is, most soft-leafed herbs can do fine in a cup of water sitting out on the counter for a few days, but rosemary does better in the refrigerator.

*My favorite towels for food storage are flour sack towels, which are inexpensive, durable, and thin enough to be used like a paper towel. They come in packs, and I recommend keeping some full-size for vegetables like kale and cutting some into quarters and half sizes for herbs or other small veggies.

What is this vegetable and what do I do with it?!


Sometimes at the farmer’s market or in a CSA box you may come across a vegetable you’ve never seen before. Or perhaps you know the name of a vegetable but you’ve never cooked with it and aren’t sure what to do with it. That’s where our Veggie Gallery comes in handy! CLICK HERE to visit the gallery.
