Food & Drink: Tips & Tricks
Do you grow your own herbs to use when cooking? If so, then you've probably wondered, "When is the best time to pick fresh herbs?" And you'd be right to want to know that since the time of day that you pick an herb can impact it's flavor.
So when is the best time to pick those fresh herbs? First thing in the morning. Herbs are at their most flavorful and fragrant in the morning hours. Over the course of a day, the herbs will start to lose their essential oils. This leads to less of a flavor and cooking with herbs is all about flavor. Since fresh herbs are just a great way to add powerful flavors to any meal, you'll want to get the most bang for your herb buck.
But what if you're not planning to cook in the early morning hours? Simple, just store your freshly picked herbs by wrapping them in a damp paper towel. Don't wrap too tight, be gentle. Now store them in the vegetable crisper drawer in your refrigerator until you're ready to cook with them. Bon appetit!
