# 49 "Fresh Herbs & Olive Oil" cubes

Here's an idea I've seen multiple places.  Last week, fresh herbs were on sale, so I thought I'd give it a try.

Wash, pat dry, trim and divide up a variety of fresh herbs. I used basil, sage, thyme and rosemary.  

Fill an ice cube tray with the herbs, either one kind per cube or mixed.  Add olive oil and freeze.  (Note: the olive oil turns white when frozen.)

When frozen, pop out cubes and store in a freezer bag.  Use as needed; no need to defrost first.Cuts down on waste AND saves time when preparing meals! That's great!

  1. This looks awesome - I am going to do this at the end of garden season when I have not used all my herbs an don't want to waste them! Thanks!
