Storing year end herbs

Today we're going to talk
about some really easy way to store your
left-over herbs.

Herbs usually grow like wildfire in your
average garden. As the end of the season
nears, you'll want to collect your herbs
to use over the winter months.

Some folks choose to freeze their herbs.
One way is to put the fresh leaves on a
cookie sheet in the freezer and then after
they're totally frozen, store them in the
freezer in a bag. Another way is to fill
an ice cube tray with the chopped herb.
Fill the tray with water and freeze. When
the ice cubes have completely frozen, separate
them and put them into freezer bags which
you have labeled. You can then take them
out of the freezer one cube at a time to
add to stews, soups, and other dishes.

I've stored dried herbs in the freezer to
keep them longer. This helps in case the
herbs aren't 100% dry.

Dark glass bottles that don't let the light
in are great to store dried herbs in. You'll
want them to have tight fitting lids to keep
extra air out, too .

Some folks will preserve the flavor of their
herbs in oil. It's great to cook with, and
usually will last around 6 months.

With so many ways to harvest herbs, you can
try them all!
