How to Store Fresh Basil

Fresh basil is abundant and cheap this time of year, but it is also very delicate. Basil doesn’t do well in the refrigerator—it will wilt and/or develop brown spots.

The basil in the photo is three days old but looks as fresh as when I cut it. All I’ve been doing is storing it in a glass of cold water, left on the kitchen counter. I change the water daily.
