How To Series: Cilantro

Monday, January 18, 2010

Cilantro plays a wide role in our daily lives. without cilantro, no dish is complete,.
 Cilantro/ Coriander leaves spoils very quickly if we store them in bags.
I store cilantro in two ways.

1) Immediately after u bought cilantro wash it n pat dry it( u can put washed cilantro on a news paper spreading). Remove if there are any dark or spoiled leaves.
2) I collected all the long stemmed ones and tie them like a  bunch. cut it at the end equally.

3) Take a small mouth vase or a bottle that has a little big mouth. Fill the bottle with water up to 2 inch lower to the rim. now put the bunch in water so that leaves are not getting immersed in water. All u need to do is put the bunch in water and spread the leaves.

4) Now take the same bag in which u bought cilantro and cover the vase  by putting bag on it upside down. keep it in fridge. Use whenever u want it by jus picking stems n again keep it in fridge.

5)U can store like this upto 2 weeks,Change water for every 2 days. if u see any dark leaves jus remove them
6) Secondly, what i do is , i will collect all the remaining leaves n store them in a box layering with paper towels n store in fridge.
