How to Store Cilantro

How to Store Cilantro

Cilantro is a delicious herb that can add a lot of flavor to your cooking. But it can be tricky to keep it fresh.


Some say you should store cilantro in the fridge, wrapped in a damp paper towel in a plastic bag and this will help keep the cilantro from wilting. But you should change the paper towel every few days to keep it from molding. You can also store it in a jar of water in the fridge. Just make sure to change the water every few days. Another way to keep cilantro fresh is to freeze it. Just chop up the cilantro and put it in a freezer bag. It will keep for months this way. 


Spoiler alert! Just wrap it in Abeego beeswax food wrap.

It's perfect for cilantro because it allows it to breathe but still keeps it protected from the air, light, and moisture. No more wilted, slimy cilantro mess! Bonus, it's reusable so you can use it over and over again, and it's completely natural so you don't have to worry about harming you, your food, or the environment. We recommend the Medium Square Wrap for cilantro bunches, available in a Single or 3-Pack.
