Herb Tips // Favorites

I love cooking with fresh herbs, but they can be expensive and don’t have a very long shelf life. Here are a couple of quick tips to extend the life of your herbs!

Herb Storage Tips

Herb Storage Tips

If you’ve purchased way too many fresh herbs, or if your garden is full of them, chop herbs and place into an ice cube tray. Pour olive oil over the herbs and freeze. I’ve used this trick with cilantro and basil, two of my favorites! I pull the cubes out of the freezer and toss them into a skillet when cooking meat, beans, or sauces!

Herb Storage Tips

Cilantro is the herb that I use most often. I make a LOT of Mexican food and I love the fresh flavor that cilantro adds. You can prolong its life by wrapping washed cilantro in a damp paper towel and placing it in a ziploc bag. It’ll last for weeks this way!

Herb Scissors - Must Have!

Last but not least, my herb scissors are one of my favorite kitchen gadgets! They cut herbs into nice, even ribbons without putting your fingers in harm’s way.
Take advantage of all of the fresh herbs that are in stores right now, or plant your own!
