Learn How to Freeze Fresh Herbs and add a few New Recipes for Fresh Herbs to your Meal Plan!
This week…FRESH HERBS! More specifically, how to freeze fresh herbs!
Fresh herbs. I love cooking with fresh herbs.
And I love the fact that I can cook with fresh frozen herbs that I grew in my own garden in the dead of winter. Once or twice throughout the summer, I’ll harvest a bunch of herbs and then freeze them. It’s a simple process, but it does require a little extra time in the kitchen. But I promise you’ll thank yourself later, when you go to make an Italian stew…and you have fresh Italian garden herbs in your freezer!
The process is simple.
- Puree with some water. Any combination of herbs will do.
- Freeze in ice cube trays.
- Once frozen, pop out and store in a freezer baggie or container.
- Enjoy in your favorite pasta sauces, soups and stews!
And don’t forget…you can always use a combination of Italian type herbs to make a great pesto and freeze that too!
