Fresh oregano should always be stored in the refrigerator either wrapped in a damp paper towel or with its stems placed in a container of water. Since it is very fragile, even if stored properly, oregano will only keep fresh for about two- four days. Oregano can be frozen, either whole or chopped, in airtight containers. Alternatively, you can freeze the oregano leaves in ice cube trays covered with water or stock that can be added when preparing soups or stews.
