Think back to a time you bought a bunch of fresh, green herbs to cook into your favorite dish. You chopped or snipped a quarter of the bunch into your food, and we all know what happens next. The rest of the herb bunch go back into the refrigerator where they are doomed to go bad in two or three days. It’s a waste of delicious herbs, and a waste of money.
Before you give up and succumb to lifeless dried herbs, know this. There is hope. Effective, well-designed, convenient hope: the Herb Savor by Prepara.
This herb saver comes with three primary components: the water well base, the plastic shell, and the stainless steel herb basket. To use, simply rinse the herbs in the basket, fit the basket with the herb tips facing down between the two piece plastic shell, and fit the shell into the water well base. Fill the base with water and refrigerate. Come back two days later – your herbs will still be fresh. Come back two weeks later and – yep! – your herbs are still fresh.
Still need convincing? Oprah called the Prepara herb savor the most exciting thing to happen to her in 2010. I don’t know about you, but if it’s good enough for Oprah, it’s good enough for me.
