Do you grow your own herbs?


Did you know that you can preserve them by freezing them?

 
I frequently freeze my freshly-harvested herbs into ice cubes so that they are easily on hand, even when they are out of season.
 
 
Whenever I need them in my favorite dish, I simply pop out an ice cube from the freezer.

    I like to freeze mine in those little tiny containers you get with take out for your salad dressing or barbecue sauce… perfect size… has a nice little tight-fitting lid you can write “chives” or “oregano” or whatever is inside.
