#1 Leftover Herbs
Since you can never use all of your herbs, place leftover herbs between 2 paper towels and microwave them for a minute or so. This process will dry them and make them useful for your next dish.
#2 Fresh Onions, Garlic, Etc.
Place onions, garlic, shallots, and the like inside ventilated paper bags, so they are kept fresh. Remember to punch holes into the paper bag to store them. You’ll be surprised that they’d be perfect months from now!
