Sometimes these are interesting, sometimes goofy, sometimes useless. The annoying thing is that there is no way to comment on them, and isn't that what chowhound is all about. In the tip about basil the guy talking (maybe im supposed to know who he is) can't figure out why the plastic bag is so important. I wanna scream DUHHH... because anything left in a refrigerator unwrapped for a week is gonna dehydrate ESPECIALLY leafy greens. But there is no way to do it... even politely without yelling.
You are free to comment on that tip on the page where it lives, which is here: http://www.chow.com/stories/10833
Due to the way the site is built, all of the videos live on their own pages, where you can comment on them, and are also circulated on recipe page and board page players, which don't link to comments. It can be a bit hard to find that story page, but if you search on "basil storage technique" you should see it at the top of the list. Feel free to scream "duh" on the comments page. All comments pertaining to the tip are welcome.
