Local Ginger

If you have ordered local Ginger you need to put in the fridge as it will go mouldy if left out. Wrap in a paper towel to keep it dry or you can freeze it as well. Coriander, chilli, bean shoots,

Storage hunt for greens

If your herbs wilt don’t panic. Fill a basin with cold water drop in some ice cubes, pop in the herb and soak. Then pull out, shake dry, pop on paper towel to dry out and bingo – it’s popped back to life. Store in a paper towel in bag or container to keep the fridge humidity off it.
