Today I want to share with you this fantastic way to store your leafy herbs.  This method works better than any other method I have used.  

First, take a length of paper towels long enough to spread your herbs out in a single-ish layer.  Dampen the paper towels.  This is the hardest part – after squeezing the extra water out, do your best not to tear the paper towels apart as you shake it out flat again.

I have not tried it on green onions yet before today, but I took a picture anyway.  This method keeps my cilantro fresh for so long, I can only hope that it will work as well for the green onions!
