Fresh savory should be stored in a plastic bag in your refrigerator crisper drawer.
For long term storage of savory, we recommend drying it on the stem. The best drying method is hanging it in bunches to dry over time, but you can also dry savory in a 185 degree oven. Dried savory can be stored in an air tight container in a cool, dry place. It will likely be significantly less potent than fresh.
