Dwell: save the cilantro

My elder sister showed me how to preserve cilantro in the fridge for days without having them die out in a few days. Follow these steps to enjoying the entire cilantro that you paid for! 

After you bring the cilantro home, place it in a strainer and wash it thoroughly for grit. 

Place the cilantro on a piece of paper to dry - you can leave this under a fan or outside in the sun. Turn the cilantro over once - you need to get rid of all the water. The water is what kills it. 

Then chop the cilantro up with a knife or  scissors. Lay it out for another half an hour for further drying. 

Bag it up, keep it in the fridge and enjoy for days!
