Hardy Herbs

Woody or hardy herbs like rosemary, thyme, sage, and chives, should be arranged lengthwise on a damp paper towel, rolled up, and then sealed in a plastic bag or sealed container. Store in the refrigerator.

Hardy herbs are also ideal for long-term storage by freezing in oil or butter. See our tip for Frozen Herbs for details.
