Title: Easy Ways to Preserve Fresh Herbs with Olive
Amazing idea! Why not
the herbs and fresh leaves be preserved?
Yes, they can be
conserved for the winter. As in summer many new leaves and fresh thymes are
gathered, they can be well kept for the winter’s soup without missing your favorite
ingredients. Garden-fresh herbs are not available everywhere, the neatness and
freshness cannot be obtained. So the best way to freeze the herbs is in oil.
Rather than using different oils store those in olive grease which can
safeguard the herbs from browning and other freezer burns.
As the dishes contain
oils to cook the onions and potatoes, conserve the herbs in oil which may be
used directly and they can act as a base for your dish. The preservation works
with the best of basil leaves, herbs, broccoli and oregano. The soft herbs such
as the thymes, mint and lemon verbena are usually added raw to the whole dish.
So freeze the herbs which can be used for basil pesto. The main reason of icing
them in oil is the aromas of the leaves are well infused so, this acts like a
bonus for the recipe.

delicate by freezing them. Follow few methods which can be well-kept.

    can be used for winter dishes. So choose firm and fresh leaves, herbs from your
  • Collect them all separately and chop them fine if needed. At times the
    larger sprigs and leaves are also well preserved. So the frozen thymes are very
    much useful.
  • Herbs such as stalk, oregano, rosemary, sage, broccoli, and fennel can be
    gathered, finely chopped and can be placed in an ice cube tray. The wells are
    almost filled with thymes and later pour some olive oil or the unsalted butter
    over the herbs.
  • The tray can be covered with a plastic wrap which can safeguard and freeze
    it overnight. These can be preserved in different moulds or jars also.
  • Later the frozen cubes are removed from the ice trays and stored in a
    container. These can be placed in small bags also and can be used for winter
    roast chickens.
  • Make sure you label the bags with their names containing the herbs. People
    use different oils also, so with the oils can serve you better.
  • This can allow the aroma of the leaves packed inside and spread in the
    recipe. In this way the leaves don’t lose their potency. 
This is a brilliant
idea which is loved by many. This is a perfect, healthy and safe way to
conserve the stems. It acts as a tip for every kitchen lover and cook lover. Cash

market. Instead opt for this outstanding idea which can save your money.
