Store relish in closed jar or airtight container

Every week I buy a fresh Bunch of Cilantro at the Farmer’s Market. And wrap this bunch in a clean kitchen towel. The moment I get home. However I’m not always that meticulous. And sometimes I forget to properly pack this herb. Before storing a bunch in the fridge.

So the only solution to safeguard a bunch of Cilantro. Is to make Relish. And the good thing of relish is that time will do all the hard work. You add herbs, vegetables and oil to an airtight container or glass. And the ingredients take their time to mingle. And blend into this fresh sauce with character
