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 sauce, 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!
