Tips for buying and storing herbs

Buy whole herbs if possible – most ground herbs lose potency quickly.

Store herbs in dark and cool place – put dried herbs in airtight containers and make sure they’re not exposed to light.

Store your herbs somewhere you can see them so that you can remember to use them.

Chop fresh herbs and put them in the freezer to prevent them from going bad.

Make sure you replace dried herbs after every 6 to 9 months.
