Question: What Herbs Can You Grow In Your Kitchen??


Here are 25 fresh herbs and plants you can grow that are great to have handy in the kitchen.

  • Parsley. Parsley is a mild bitter herb that can enhance the flavor of your foods.
  • Mint. There are several varieties of mint.
  • Dill.
  • Basil.
  • Sage.
  • Rosemary.
  • Thyme.
  • Cilantro/Coriander.

Should herbs be refrigerated?

Unlike the other herbs in this group, basil is not cold-tolerant and should be stored uncovered at room temperature. Herbs with stems that are firm or woody, like oregano, thyme or rosemary, do not benefit from water immersion, but light moisture and refrigeration are both helpful for effective storage.

How long will fresh herbs keep in the refrigerator?

about two to three weeks

What is the best way to store herbs?

If you have more fresh herbs than you can use, dry them. Place the leaves on a plate (chopped if using basil or parsley; whole if using thyme or rosemary) and set aside in a cool, dry place for several days. Then store them in a resealable container in the refrigerator.
