Question about fresh parsley: I bought 1 bundle last Monday and it seems to be holding up just fine. The problem is I may not get to use it any time soon. Can I freeze it at this point til I need it? If so, how do I go about doing that?

GM, When I buy fresh parsley, I bring it come clean it, then wrap a wet paper towel around the "roots", put it in a ziploc bag, lasts a long time this way. Hope this helps

Question about green onions: I bought 1 bunch of green onions on Monday as well. Not holding up so well. A few of them have withered or gone limp. The others look fine and green but the tips of them are shriveling and turning blackish. Can they be saved?

I usually pull off the ones that aren't look so hot and use the rest. I've cut them up before and chopped them to use the next night in a different dish.

Forgot to say I put them in a snack bag in the fridge. They were fine.

If you keep your green onions' roots in a glass of fresh water, you can use the green part and it'll keep growing on and on...

I feel silly about having to ask this but I don't cook with fresh herbs. I know, perish the thought. I will admit to it being easier for me to reach into my spice cabinet and grab what I want, but I do want to start cooking with fresh too, so could really use some advice here. Thank you in advance for your help with this.

I have to force myself to use them when I buy them. They are so perishable. I had to throw out some parsley and cilantro yesterday because I hadn't used them and I hadn't taken the time to put them in the fridge correctly. It was such a waste. You can google and also go to youtube. They have helpful videos on how to preserve just about any herb.
