I've got an abundance of cilantro. I have used for some, but what can I do to store it for later use? Freeze? Marinades? Ideas please.

Kenji on Serious Eats just did a detailed experiment on all of the suggested storage solutions for fresh herbs. He concluded that cilantro is best washed immediately when you bring it home. Trim the stems and put in in a jar with water. Then slip a plastic bag over the whole thing and rubber band it to the jar. Mine kept that way in the fridge for 3 or 4 weeks.
