Basil Ice Cubes
Too many fresh herbs and you don’t know what to do with them??? How about making these Basil Ice Cubes! Freeze them in an ice cube tray for use later in soups, stews and other dishes.
Every year we grow our own fresh herbs on the back deck. It’s so great when you are cooking you simply go out on to the deck and pick the fresh herbs you need for whatever you are creating in the kitchen! We love it! They are so easy to grow and it’s 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. We hate to see them do to waste at the end of the season and this is a great way to preserve them.

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 them in a Ziploc bag. Return them to the freezer. Now your tray is ready to go again.
