Frozen Herbs

I have seen this idea a few places so I decided to try it myself to see if it actually worked. I hate when I buy fresh herbs and only use a little of it and end up throwing it out because I don't use them in time. So I saw that you can cop up all the extras you have and then freeze them in oil. So here's what I did.

I took my leftover basil and chopped it into small piece. I took an ice cube tray and filled each little section hallway up with olive oil. I put about a tablespoon of basil into each section. I used a fork to mix it up to make sure the basil was completely covered. Then I put that in the freezer over night. I popped the cubes out the next day and stored them in a freezer ziploc bag. It works great!! Make sure to label your ziploc bags so you don't forget which herbs you have!!

Please excuse my horrible leaf doodle... I almost threw the bag out it was so ugly!
haha the artist in me was freaking out a little...
