Preserving Herbs for Future Use

Cooking Basics, How To


This time of year gardens are overflowing with fresh herbs and it is hard to keep up! Also, you need to regularly harvest to maximize overall yield and extend the growing season.

I often hear, "if only I could save my herbs to use in the winter." Well you can!! The simpliest way is to blend them up with some oil and freeze in ice cube trays. Once frozen, pop them out and store in zip-top bag and come December you will be a happy camper!

  1. Great video tip. I’d never heard of using oil to preserve herbs when freezing. This is something I’ll do with my next batch of herbs. Thank you.

    1. Glad it was useful, Carol! Yes, oil is best as it helps look in the color and nutrients especially the “fat-soluble” ones! Enjoy!
