About This Article
To store mint in a plastic bag, pat the mint with a paper towel to remove
any excess moisture that could cause it to go bad. Then, dampen a paper towel
with a small amount of water, and loosely wrap the mint in the paper towel.
Slide the mint into a bag, being careful not to crush any of the leaves. Seal the bag without removing the air. Once the mint is in the bag, lay
the bag flat on its side on a shelf in the refrigerator. You can keep the
mint refrigerated for up to a week before the leaves will begin to darken and go bad.
