I just clipped my basil plants and usually I use them right away, but I realized AFTER I cut them that I don't have any tomatoes! I need to keep them until tomorrow, what's the best way to store them to keep them as fresh as possible?

They are clipped, but I just need to keep them one day. They tend to shrivel if I put them in the fridge though.
No I haven't tried drying my herbs, I've never had enough to dry! I think I might this year though, my basil plants are looking awesome!! How do you dry yours?
Just spread them out on a flat pan, and leave them to dry out, I usually place the pan on top of the fridge, so they're out of the way. Too simple.

I'll let you know how this works! Thank you!
This method will work for a few days...there is nothing better than cooking with fresh herbs and spices......good luck.
Indeed! That's why I always wait to clip them, but I this time, I thought I had tomatoes to make soup, but sadly I didn't! So far, so good. I hope to use them today though.
