This year I planted a herb garden 🙂 Because of this I have A LOT of herbs (Basil, peppermint, thyme, parsley, cilantro, sage, and oregano) that I will not be able to use ALL RIGHT NOW! So I decided to do this fun way of preserving them.
Preserving Herbs for Cooking by Freezing 🙂
What you need!
Olive oil(or oil of choosing)
Some helpers – preferably with smiles.
About 30 minutes of time (or thyme) whichever you prefer 😛
First, pick your herbs!
Here is our first pickings
Next we wash them!
Chop them into LITTLE BITS! I liked to use my little CPR chopper 🙂
Fourthly, place them into an ice tray like these ones. I made sure they were 3/4 of the way full. I also REALLY like using our star-shaped tray 🙂
Add your oil!!Olive oil pictured here
Use for your meals!! YAY!
And one minor suggestion, don’t forget which ones are which! I accidentally forgot which were my sage and parsley. Because of this I wrote a little map down in my journal.
Anyway, enjoy! I will have to do this again this weekend with cilantro!
I did not show my peppermint!! I will do a post later about those ones 🙂
