This Spring, I made it my mission to start an herb garden. It's actually done very well! My Basil, chives, rosemary and oregano are all doing great! The only one I had issues with was my Thyme.
When the garden started to grow, I needed a way to preserve them without having them wilt away.
I did some research and found the easiest way to do it is by freezing the herbs in an ice cube tray with water.
Here is how to do it:
- Clip herbs
- Cut/Chop to desired consistency
- Place in ice cube tray
- Fill with water
- Freeze and then use as needed when cooking
- Store in a ziploc bag in the freezer
Another way is to puree them in a food processor and fill them in the tray with olive oil.
