The next method of harvesting herbs is drying. It is considered the easiest and allows you to preserve not only taste and aroma, but also a large number of vitamins that are so needed in winter. It is better to dry spicy herbs with the presence of essential oils, so they can give more aroma and taste.

Do not forget that it is possible to speed up the drying of washed greens with a special dryer. this is a round plastic container with a twisting colander inside and a lid with a handle. Works on the principle of centrifuge: when promoting, centrifugal force pushes excess moisture on the walls of the container.

When drying, the greens also undergoes a preparatory cleaning stage. In summer, for example, in a summer cottage can be dried outdoors in a horizontal position for several days, be sure to hide from sunlight. To do this, spread the grass with a thin layer on a baking sheet covered with paper. You can dry in an upright position, hanging the bundles up.

At home, greens should be dried on the windowsill, again avoiding direct sunlight. You can consider drying in the oven at a temperature of 40 ℃, having previously cleaned the grass and decomposed on a baking sheet until all the moisture evaporates. The smaller the temperature, the better the beneficial substances will remain.

Dry grass with a hard stem (rosemary, thyme, thyme) directly on the branch, spreading on paper in a dry warm place.

I recently read on one of the sites: rinse the greens, get wet with a paper towel. Put the greens between 2 sheets of paper towel and in the refrigerator. In this way, greens are stored for up to 3 weeks

And I put the greens like a bouquet in a vase. in a cup of water. I cover a package with a ventilation hole. And in the refrigerator. Depending on the type of greens, it costs 2. 3 weeks. Parsley and dill. up to 3 weeks. Cins. 2 weeks. Green onion. 3. 4 weeks.

Okay, I will share my way, which suits me very much and works unconditionally. I take a plastic tark with a hermetically closing lid. At the bottom I put a piece of paper towel, twice. For him, for example parsley. Then another layer of towels and dill. I cover it again with a paper towel and tightly cover it with a lid. I have such a tark, with a fastening lid. Everything! Greens are remarkably preserved for one to two weeks. I periodically dry the paper towel or replace it with a dry.

A few years ago, the seller of greenery shared the way how to save it in the refrigerator longer, lay a bunch of dill or parsley in a liter jar “upside down”, cover with a lid and in the refrigerator. The method works, verified.

I recently learned to store greens differently, it lasts much longer- for three weeks it lies very fresh and green. My greens are good, you can not dry and wrap it in a wet m/a towel. Put in the refrigerator on the shelf. Five days later we wet the towel in cold water again. All! Test and see!

I always send spoiled greens with a feeling of deep sorrow to the garbage bucket, but I don’t see the panacea from this yet. Greens of greenery! Cins, salad leaves. tender greens, spoils quickly. Regan is stored a little longer. Parsley, celery more “hardy”. Dill somewhere in the middle. Definitely summer greens are stored longer than the one that is sold in other seasons. Well this is, general information. As for the proposed storage method, it is definitely not for me. Breathe in the bag, and then use this greens, sorry, just disdain, especially if someone “breathed”. It is better without greens at all than with this way of storage! Greens washed before storage (albeit dried), will deteriorate faster. If a place allows in the refrigerator, then parsley, dill, regag in a glass of water will be stored in the refrigerator longer. For 5-6 days they will stand for sure! Although the regag will be bought faster (it is said above why). I read the other day that the greens will last longer if it is wrapped in foil. I run up this method while this method. A couple of days ago I “packed” the spinach until he died, and then “we will see”. In general, my advice: shred more in salad, a storehouse of vitamins still! And if you still deteriorate and have to throw away. Well, for a lifetime you can’t give a thing!

There is also another great way, but without a package, but with a towel. Wash the greens, dry and wrap well in a towel. After you can put in the refrigerator. In this form, greens retains freshness much longer than usual.

That’s great! There is almost no greens in the garden, but we keep the unfortunate bush of salad incorrect. To eat fresh a few more days. Now we’ll collect it in a bag)) thanks!

Secrets of sellers whose greens do not wither

The easiest way to preserve the greens of fresh is to periodically place it in a container with water. It is important to do everything right.

The roots should be in the liquid, and the green mass should be covered with a plastic bag. Place the finished “design” in the refrigerator. So it will be possible to maintain the freshness of any greens longer.

It is more difficult to do such manipulations in the market. Therefore, sellers simply spray greens from time to time.

According to the information portal RSUTE.ru, if parsley and salad begin to lose the presentation, that is, a way to return their former freshness. The procedure is as follows:

The method is effective for plants such as cilantro, dill, parsley and onions. If you need to refresh salad leaves, then warm water is more suitable for this purpose. After 15 minutes, the leaves will not look so letharged as before.
