farm~stand season...a frugal luxury

Keep garden herbs in the refrigerator to add a pretty surprise and extend their freshness.

Frugal luxury

...fresh farm~stand fare

"Keep herbs fresh for two weeks, or longer, by placing them (in bunches) in a water filled glass or jar and refrigerate them (add water as needed). I keep mine in miniature clear~glass milk bottles that I discovered in a Wisconsin junk store years ago. These are lovely looking and the perfect size for this task. To use the herbs simply snip what you need....from the bunch and return to your refrigerator."

EXCERPT ABOVE FROM: Frugal Luxuries by the Seasons; written by Tracey McBride; published by Bantam Books, NY, 2000.


Hello kind souls...we've been busy helping my dad (raiding all his local farm~stands) and preparing for Rosie's upcoming graduation from high school this month! I've been thinking good thoughts towards you all and have some fun posts in the making! More soon.

Good thoughts and love to all.
