How can I keep fresh herbs from getting brown spots?
I like to make homemade pesto, but it is very frustrating because I'll buy basil and if I don't use it that day, it starts getting brown spots on it. Are there any tricks that would help it to stay good longer? Is it still okay to use once it has brown spots on it?
It is still OK to use with brown spots on it. I love pesto. The trick is to not wash all of it before you use it even freezing it will make the pesto go brown. This is just the way it is. One thing I do is to lay in onto paper towels. Then roll it up into paper towels and put into a zip-lock bag and seal it . This will keep it for about a week and then only wash basil just before you use it.
