Enjoy home-grown summer flavor all year by learning how to dry herbs! Find various methods and helpful tips for how to dry fresh herbs, and how to make a fragrant fire starter after drying fresh herbs.
Herbs in "frozen" olive oil is one of my favorite ways to harvest. The herbs don't get dry , brown and brittle in the same way they do when they get frozen in water. They also retain their scent and flavor much more effectively!
Freezing Herbs in Oil Choose firm, fresh herbs, such as rosemary, sage, thyme, and oregano. Pack the wells of ice cube trays about 2/3 full of herbs. Pour extra-virgin olive oil or melted, unsalted butter over the herbs. Cover lightly with plastic wrap and freeze overnight. Remove the frozen cubes and store in freezer containers or small bags.
