Freeze fresh herbs……….

If you’re still not able to use up all your fresh herbs before they go bad, here’s a hint on what to do. Chop them up and throw them in the freezer. Try freezing them in an ice cube tray. Once frozen, remove the cubes and place them in a freezer-safe bag. This way you can pull out just what you need the next time you cook.
