I love fresh herbs- but what's even better is when you store them yourself from your own making! The best grocery store varieties have been sitting on the shelves/manufacturers warehouses for who knows how long and the best herbs have a shelf life of 6-12 months, depending on the type. You can never be sure when they were harvested. So to get best flavor without pesticides and the costly price tag, drying and storing them yourself is the way to go. Herbs don't need much room to grow so you can grow them almost anywhere. I store mine in glass baby jars and paint the TOPS of the lids white. I like to hand write my labels, as it adds a little bit of 'home' in the kitchen. You don't have to use baby jars, they are super easy and a great size for herbs but if you start looking at the jars you throw away- some have awesome shapes and great lids- you'll notice those are great for herbs too. Save a few over the next month or so and you'll know what I mean :)
