How to Select Fresh Basil?
Look for fresh, vibrant green leaves with no dark spots or signs of decay. Fresh basil leaves should be layered in damp paper towels inside a plastic bag and refrigerated up to 4 days.
How to Store & Keep Basil Fresh?
To keep basil fresh, trim the stems and place them in a glass or jar of water, just like cut flowers. Loosely cover it with a plastic bag and leave it on the counter. Although certain herbs, such as parsley and cilantro, can be stored this way in the fridge, basil does better at room temperature.
