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!
If you have an abundance of herbs and don't want to waste them, then freeze them! It's super easy and takes just a few minutes. Then, you'll have fresh herbs year-round!
- Fresh basil or herb of your choice
