Fresh herbs: What do I do with the extra?
I don’t know about you but when I buy fresh herbs I usually end up with way more than I can reasonably use in the few days that it stays fresh. I have tried growing my own but I seem to have the touch of death when it comes to botany (I will keep trying though as I come from a family of farmers so it’s got to be in my blood somewhere, right?). Drying it seems pointless since I have a cupboard full of dried herbs and spices so I decided to try chopping it up then freezing it.
Now, I may just be a bit slow and you all already do this but SUCCESS!
Freezing those left over herbs means I always have “fresh” herbs to hand when I want them to cook with (not so good for garnish or uncooked recipes) without the waste of having more than I need lying around in my fridge. Plus the bags are really easy to refill when you’re getting low.
