Whether you’re sprucing up soups and salads, or making a pesto that packs a punch, adding fresh herbs is a small way to put a lot of flavor into your dishes.
If you’ve been cooking with herbs for a while, you know that herbs can be pretty pricey – especially in the off-season. Don’t worry…you won’t have to cut back on your favorite herbs.
My Family Dinner has some helpful tips on how to make your fresh herbs last longer!
- Herbs can be frozen in ice cube trays. Simply place the herbs in the tray, cover with water, and freeze. Then, when you’re ready to use them, just pop out a cube or two and add them to your dish.
- You can also dry your own herbs. Start by washing the herbs and then patting them dry. Next, tie them in small bundles and hang them upside down in a cool, dry place. Once they’re dry, you can store them in an airtight container.
- If you want to keep your herbs fresh for as long as possible, try storing them in a vase filled with water. Just be sure to change the water every few days.
Try one – or all – of these easy tips and have fresh herbs ready to go for your next culinary masterpiece!
