How to Make Saving Herbs

Step-by-Step

  1. Chop herbs as you normally would for use. Place in a bowl. Add extra-virgin olive oil. Just enough to coat. Stir.
  2. Using a small flat dish (cake pan, pie, or similar, and line with plastic wrap. Place herbs in pan and spread to about 1/4 around the pan.
  3. Place in freezer and leave until frozen. Bring the surrounding plastic wrap around to cover and place into a plastic freezer bag.
  4. Break off pieces as needed in recipes. The herbs will "melt" out in a few seconds. Great for parsley and cilantro, but can be used for anything.
