The key for your greens to last longer is to store them efficiently and wisely. Microgreens are no exception. When you’re delving into the world of superfoods, it is a prerequisite that you know how to handle them well.
Undoubtedly, one of the best and simplest ways to store them is to place them between damp pieces of paper towels or a muslin cloth, sealing them in a plastic bag or a container, and refrigerating it. Storing your microgreens the right way should offer you their perks for up to a week.
It is also advised to leave your microgreens in the refrigerator till they are ready to go into your recipe or on your plate. This way, you’ll prevent them drying out or wilting before serving them.
