I had intended to share this tip last fall when all of those beautiful summer herbs were facing their wintry demise. But it is equally relevant now – have you ever bought a $3 package of fresh herbs just to have a bunch of leftovers?
You could toss them into any dish to use them up. Or dry them. Or you could freeze them to maintain a bit of that freshness. But instead of chopping the herbs and freezing them in water, I’ve been freezing mine in olive oil.
See where we’re going here? Yep. Instant infused olive oils! I keep my herb cubes in the freezer and just toss one into a pot any time I want to sauté veggies or meat or even begin a soup or casserole!
*Some recommend carefully labeling the cubes and freezing them separately depending upon which herb is frozen. I just toss mine all together and use whatever I grab to add to my dish!
