Freezing Fresh Herbs
My friend Patty (from Country Life Natural Foods) showed me how she always has fresh/frozen herbs in the freezer.
Rinse off your bunch of cilantro, parsley, basil etc… trim the stems just a little and put the bunch in a vase. They will revitalize and crisp up while air-drying the leafy herbs.
After a few hours or the next day, trim off the stems, chop the herbs and place into a freezer container. You can even smash down all the basil leaves into a tight compacted space.
Need some fresh herbs sprinkled on anything? Just go to your freezer for a beautiful blast of green herbs ready to go!
