Storage Tip

Keep potatoes in a dark area and separated from onions and garlic to maximize their shelf life.

Herb Swap

For different flavors, substitute cilantro, mint, or dill for parsley. Use dried oregano or dill when fresh herbs are not available.

Reduce Food Waste

When using fresh, soft herbs such as cilantro or parsley, do not waste the stems! These stems have the same flavors as the leaves with added crunch. Stretch your food dollars by using the entire plant.
