easy cheap way to save extra Herbs
Not sure if this is news to those here but it was a revelation for me:
I recently had a very big Basil harvest (they are loving the full sun and the warm IL weather I moved to).
Being a single girl with no one to cook for there is only so much basil I can use and feared my hard worked for leaves would go to waste...until now!
I bought some ice cube trays which I filled with chopped basil and extra virgin olive oil.
Now I have cubes in a bag (I took them out of the trays for easier storage in freezer). There is about a tbsp of basil and oil in each one so it is now easy to drop in when cooking as recipes require! Bonus? The basil is still green as when I cut it so no gross browning in dishes!
I don't see any reason this wouldn't work with other herbs as well..
Hope someone else cna benefit from this cool little trick :)
