Hate to see all those fresh herbs in your garden go to waste? Check out this unique idea on how to freeze your fresh herbs!
I am not much of a gardner but I have somehow managed to grow an abundance of herbs every year! As the season comes to an end and I watch my beautiful plants shut down for the winter, it just breaks my heart!
So I used an old ice cube tray (does anybody really use these things anymore?). I made several batches. One with water for when I want herbs but no oil and one with a good olive oil.
I toss them in soups and sauces. I only wish I would have made more!
Next time you need a little herby boost in your pot of something yummy…throw one in! Loved this idea!
How to freeze your fresh herbs!
Using a plastic or silicone ice cube tray, place your herbs either one or a combo of many, inside each tray.
Pour either olive oil or water into each tray. I find I like the water ones when I don’t want oil and visa versa so a combo is great!
Now into the freezer it goes! When solid, remove from trays and store in ziplock bags.
Use this method to freeze herbs to use in soups and sauces all year long!
