Have recipes that call for fresh herbs? It's depressing when you open your fridge and find all of your fresh herbs dried out, making them useless. Even if they are still usable, it's not the same when the flavor has been compromised by the drying out process.
How do you keep all of your fresh herbs fresh? There is an easy method!
Grab an ice cube tray. Cut up your fresh herbs to a smaller size to fit inside of the individual ice cube compartments. Cover all of your fresh herbs with a good virgin olive oil. Cover the whole thing in plastic wrap and place it in the freezer.
When a recipe calls for your favorite fresh herb, pull out the ice cube tray and grab a cube or two. The olive oil creates a natural state of storage so the herbs remain fresh and great tasting. The oil adds a bit of flavor to the recipe as well. The combination between herbs and olive oil is an amazing marriage.
