What's the best way to store fresh basil leaves?


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?
