This is one of my FAVORITE kitchen hacks.
Freezing and preserving herbs in olive oil is a simple way to keep your favorite herbs fresh and ready to use all year long. It's a functional kitchen technique that's simple and fun - a great project to get the whole family involved in!
I'm not sure about you, but when I purchase herbs at the grocery store, I always end up with more than I need. This technique lets me save my left overs and keep them fresh and ready to go - when I need them. If you grow your own herbs at home, this is a great way to preserve them through the cold winter months.
You can choose to keep the herbs whole or chop them before stuffing them into the individual molds. You can also choose to keep them separate or combine them to make a tasty herb blend - it's completely up to you! To use, simply add your 'herb cube' to soups, sauces, marinades, potato dishes and more! It's a great base to start with -since most dishes call for olive oil to begin.
