How to Store Watercress

Most greens do not have a long shelf life. Watercress, which is 93% water, is no exception. Once harvested, this aquatic leaf is highly perishable and needs to be refrigerated.

Bunch watercress can be treated like a bouquet of flowers. Simply place the watercress stems in a jar of water and place it in the refrigerator. Cover the leaves loosely using a perforated bag. Stored this way, watercress can last for a couple of days.

You can also store bunch watercress by wrapping a wet cloth or paper towel around the stems and placing it in a plastic bag before storing it in the fridge.

B&W watercress leaves are pre-packed in breathable micro-perforated bags that can be stored directly in the refrigerator.

How to Prepare Watercress

Watercress is as easy to prepare as lettuce for a salad. Simply rinse it thoroughly in cold water and blot it dry using paper towels or use a standard salad spinner. For bunch watercress, use a kitchen knife to cut off any oversized stems. Easy enough, right?
