Saving Your Fresh Herbs

Saving Your Fresh Herbs

This year I planted a herb garden πŸ™‚ 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 πŸ™‚

What you need!Β 

Fresh herbs
Olive oil(or oil of choosing)
Some helpers – preferably with smiles.
About 30 minutes of time (or thyme) whichever you prefer πŸ˜›

First, pick your herbs!

Chop them into LITTLE BITS! I liked to use my little CPR chopper πŸ™‚

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 πŸ™‚

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 πŸ™‚
