The Herbs of Summer

Ever want to have fresh picked herb flavor for dishes in the winter? Here's a handy little idea to do just that!

Herb Cubes

1. Pick and wash fresh herbs before first frost

2. Chop and strip preparing the herbs as you would normally

3. Fill ice cube trays half-full of herbs
4. Top off with water
5. Place in freezer overnight
6. Pop herb cubes and double bag in freezer zip-locs
7. Don't forget to label them

When you need a pinch of herbs for a dinner dish throw in a single herb cube and it'll thaw while your dish cooks. I harvested a full ice cube tray's worth each of Sage, Rosemary, Spearmint and Basil. You can also combine commonly used herbs into a pesto and freeze them too.
