Storing & Cooking Information

Handling: To prep it, first rinse and shake dry the leaves. Hold the bouquet at an angle with the leaves against the cutting board. Run your knife down the side of the bouquet to slice away the leaves. It's fine to remove some of the tender stems along with the leaves.

Storing: Cilantro should be wrapped in a damp towel or stood upright in a container with an inch of water and refrigerated.  Do not wash prior to refrigerating.
