Fresh herbs are the key to elevating any dish or herbal experience. However, keeping them fresh for an extended period can be challenging. Here's your guide to maintaining the freshness of your herbs, featuring the Pick a Roll Smell-Proof Stash Jar as the ultimate storage solution.
Proper Initial Storage
Freshness starts with the initial storage. While plastic bags are convenient, they can accelerate the degradation of herbs. Opt for glass containers like the Pick a Roll Smell-Proof Stash Jar, which offers an airtight seal and protects against light degradation.
Too much humidity can make your herbs moldy, while too little can dry them out. Keep humidity levels in check by using humidity packs inside your stash jar.
Light and Temperature
Light and heat can degrade the quality of herbs. Store your jars in a cool, dark place like a cupboard or pantry. Pick a Roll's rubber-coated glass stash jar provides an extra layer of protection against light.
Perform regular checks on your stored herbs. Look for changes in color, texture, and smell, as these are indicators of degrading quality. Pick a Roll's glass design makes it easy to perform visual checks without opening the jar.
If you're storing larger quantities, consider portioning out your herbs for daily or weekly use. This reduces the frequency of opening your main storage jar, preserving the herb’s freshness for a longer time.
The "Sniff" Test
Sometimes the best test is the oldest—smelling your herbs. A scent that's lost its strength is a clear sign your herbs have lost their potency. Our smell-proof jar ensures that odors stay contained, making the sniff test more reliable.
