I’ve been growing a lot of herbs for the last few months (I have made just about every dish possible with them) but now I don’t think I can eat any more basil, cilantro, or rosemary for a while…
I feel bad just throwing these fresh herbs away, so (after some Googling, Pinterest-ing, and great advice I found from Lauren Conrad) I decided to freeze them instead!
Dice up your herb (in my case it was rosemary) into small chunks. Put about a teaspoon of the herb into each ice cube section, then fill the rest with olive oil!
Pop those babies in the freezer and next time you are cooking with olive oil and herbs, just grab a few cubes out of the tray, pop them right into your pan, and start cooking!
This is seriously a game changer if you ask me. Not only do my fresh herbs not go to waste, but I save time now when I cook since I no longer have to pick, wash, and dice herbs anymore. I’m a happy cook today :)
What kitchen tricks do you use to make cooking easier?
P.S. The boyfriend finally got Internet at his new place so I can finally blog from it! It only took two weeks…. today has been a pretty exciting day!
