freezing fresh herbs

Anyone have good luck with freezing freash herbs?

I will occasionally buy some for a recipe and I end up throwing the rest out because it spoils before I use it.

hugs, train

I'd be interested in knowing, too. I just bought fresh dill and chives for a couple of fish recipes. I would hate to throw out the rest.

Donna....I love growing herbs. I do freeze some herbs also dry for later use. Like to dry applemint to use in tea. So far most of my herbs have lasted outside except the basil. Did dry some out and spread some of the seeds. Anxious to see if it comes back. Herbs can be frozen in ziplock bags as long as you get most of the air out. Press and seal saran wrap is a good way of preserving them too in the freezer.

Freezing Herbs

This is interesting! I never knew you could freeze herbs, but it makes sense to keep them fresh.

Thanks, Sueanna. I will try the press and seal wrap next time I have some extra herbs.
I buy them occasionally for a recipe and hate throwing the leftovers away, but they always go bad before I use them.

Hsma, any luck with freezing the rosemary?

What kind of herbs do you all grow?

hugs, train
