Hate to see all those fresh herbs in your garden go to waste? Check out this unique idea!
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!
Use this method to freeze herbs to use in soups and sauces all year long!
- Fresh herbs
- Water and/or Olive oil
- Press fresh herbs into ice cube tray.
- Top with water OR olive oil
- Freeze overnight
- Pop out of trays, into baggie and back in the freezer
