Freezing my Herbs

On Sunday I picked a few herbs from the pot on my deck.
They are still beautiful, but I know it's just a matter of a few days, maybe a week or two,  and they will be blackened by frost.  So I decided to freeze some for later this winter.

I put a good tablespoon of diced herbs in each ice cube tray; then I added some olive oil.
I covered the tray with a piece of wax paper and stuck it in the freezer overnight.  The next morning I popped them out...
 
So beautiful! I just love looking at them. :)

 I wrapped them in waxed paper and put them inside a tin and stuck them back in the freezer. I can't wait to use them in some delectable dish. When the temperature is below zero with howling winds and snow drifts, I will be able to enjoy the fresh taste of summer by popping one or two of these into my soup, roast or other entrĂ©e.

Life is good...I am feeling prepared for the long winter ahead.

  1. Now that's a good idea. I did this only with water and didn't care for the results. Olive oil makes sense...and they are so pretty too. Be sure to remind us when you use them....I'll want that recipe :)
