Too many fresh herbs and you don’t know what to do with them??? Freeze them in an ice cube tray for use later in soups, stews and other dishes. They are so easy to do and economical too. Fresh herbs can be so expensive but growing your own over summer is a great way to go. Sometimes you have an abundance of them but freezing your herbs for use later will help you through the fall and winter.
Large bunch of basil or other herb, chopped
Ice cube tray
Fill each cube with 1-2 tsp. of fresh herbs and fill with water. Freeze in the ice cube tray. Pop out the cubes and place in a Ziploc bag. Return them to the freezer. Now your tray is ready to go again.
