How To Freeze Fresh Herbs

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!
