Want to know why I decided to freeze herbs this year, well I let my 4 year old help plant the garden and she insisted on sprinkling 4 packets of basil seed on one 1/4 of the garden. Needless to say….I have a TON of basil. I love to make pesto, but do not like forking over the cash for the pine nuts. So, this year I decided to freeze my basil in olive oil so it’s ready to use with meal prep in the winter months! Now you can learn how to freeze herbs too!
- Fresh basil
- Extra virgin olive oil — where to find
- In a food processor, blend basil and olive oil
- Keep adding olive oil until you get a thin paste
- Scoop into ice cube trays — this one works amazingly well!
- Freeze herbs and oil
- Best stored in a freezer bag, lasts indefinitely in the freezer
