You can store your fresh basil on your Kitchen counter or in a bag in your refrigerator.
The best way to store your fresh basil is in a jar of water on your Kitchen counter. First trim the stems to a length that works with your jar and trim off the lower small leaves that would be under water. Fill an about 2 inches of water in the jar and place your fresh basil stem ends down into the jar. Place on you Kitchen counter, replacing the water in the jar every couple days.
Alternately, you can store your fresh basil in your refrigerator in a sealed bag with an ever so slightly dampened paper towel. Your basil will become a bit limp form the cold refrigerator, however it will still have the same great flavor. It will only last this way for a few days or more.
