What is it? Well as you can see by the plethora of herbs it is a container for storing herbs in the fridge! Like I said I was skeptical, but these herbs are over a week old and still not showing any signs of deterioration. I usually cut the ends of my herbs put them in a jar and leave in a cool place, they last a few days, the water turns mucky, smelly and I end up throwing out 2/3's of them. I have thought about keeping them in the fridge, but an open jar and toddlers are never a good combination, not to mention absent mindlessly reaching for the milk and oops.... ce la vie.
As I can not grow enough herbs to sustain my cooking needs I thought I was doomed to buying $2 bunches every time a recipe called for some. But them after careful debate and throwing at least $5 a week of old used up herbs I thought I would give it a try, I bought the Cuisipro Herb Keeper and I am glad I did so. It works by suspending the herb ends just below the water line with in a closed container. When you want some you just pull up on the top and let the inner liner containing the herbs sit on a lip within the exterior liner. Like I said these particular herbs are going on a week old and I have been using them everyday.
One thing I used my herbs for was my pass it on recipe for the week:
