Tool Tip: Basil Keeper

For years, I've kept fresh basil in a glass on the windowsill (I still keep a frond or two, it just makes the kitchen smell good.) And then I graduated to keeping it in a glass in the frig. Both kept the basil for two or three days.

Awhile back, I got this basil keeper and now basil stays fresh in the frig for 10 days or so. This one was a bit pricey for what it is but it'd be easy enough to rig up something similar on the cheap.
