General Watercress Info

Choose watercress with crisp-looking dark green leaves; smaller leaves will have a milder peppery flavor.

Short Term Watercress Storage

Snip off the bottom of the unwashed watercress stems. Fill a jar or a water glass partially with water; place the stem ends of the herbs into the water in the container. Loosely cover the jar of watercress with a plastic bag and store at room temperature. Change the water after several days if the water starts to discolor. Fresh watercress can last up to 2 weeks or longer when stored this way.

Watercress Long Term Storage

Watercress does not freeze well.

Watercress Side Notes

Watercress has small, pungent leaflets which are used as a bitter salad green in combination with milder greens, or as a garnish.
