      So very glad I happened upon this cilantro storage method! I keep cilantro on hand at all times, and even using it as often as I do, over 1/2 the bunch typically ends up being thrown out due to wilting/yellowing. I've had my jar going for about a week now and and it still looks and smells fresh and beautiful! Each time I need to use some, I just go ahead and pick through and discard the few stems that are failing. Thank you for sharing this method! Update: my first jar kept for just over a month!!! Granted, on my last use there were several stems that needed discarding, but of the still green stems, they remained fragrant and fresh tasting. Over a month!! Amazing!

      Being the scientist that I am, I had to do a side by side comparison of this with my usual method of storage (kept enclosed in a plastic produce bag). I checked/used them with the same frequency and found both methods to yield comparable results. They both lasted (and smelled fresh) for 3 weeks, following the directions to remove any yellowing or rotting stems/leaves along the way. We get very fresh produce here, so I am not sure if this method would make more of a difference if the cilantro you purchased weren't as fresh.

      This works great. A friend of mine told me about your post, so I tried it. This is going to save me a lot of trips to the market for fresh cilantro. Thanks!
