Bunches of fresh herbs, like parsley and cilantro, will keep 2 to 3 times longer if you place them in a mason jar filled halfway with water. Try to keep loose leaves out of the water like you would with fresh flowers. Store in the fridge, replacing the water every now and then, and they’ll stay fresh for a couple of weeks.
To deseed pomegranates without a mess, place a halved and stretched pom into a ziplock bag. Close and smack the peel of the fruit with the back of a wooden spoon, releasing just enough seeds for your desired serving. Store in the fridge.
