How to freeze extra herbs

The garden is full of fresh herbs and no one wants to let it all go to waste!  So I have a great tip for you. Freeze them!! You can easily chop up your leftover fresh herbs and freeze them!

How you ask?  Easy Freeze them in water for short term storage or freeze them in oil for storing over a few weeks.

I use an ice cube tray which makes it very easy to place about 1 Tablespoon of fresh herb into each of the 12 sections of the tray. Once they are frozen solid, pop them out of the tray and place into a sealed and labeled ziploc bag and store in the freezer.

This makes it so convenient to add to a recipe or to add to a drink to add some extra flavor.

 

Freeze your mint and add it to your tea for ice tea or add it to your water and now you have a a home made flavored water.

Freezing them in a 1 Tablespoon serving makes it easy to add to a recipe since it is already measured out for you.

So stop throwing out fresh herbs that you did not use and freeze them.
