Add a fresh burst of herb and olive oil flavor to your recipes in a flash…all year long.
- Fresh herbs of choice
- Olive oil
- Ice cube tray
- Wash ice cube tray thoroughly.
- Rinse herbs under cold water. Dry them well, picking off any brown bits.
- Chop herbs into 1/2 in. to 1 in. pieces. If using herbs with a woody stem (such as rosemary and some thyme), pull off and use only the leaves.
- Fill each section of the ice cube tray about half full with chopped herbs, using either one kind or a mixture of herbs.
- Fill each section with olive oil. In a standard size tray, each cube will comfortably hold 1-1/2 Tablespoons of oil.
- Place tray on a level surface in the freezer overnight.
- When cubes are frozen solid (they will look completely opaque), pop them out of the tray.
- Store cubes in a freezer-safe container or resealable freezer bag.
- Use as needed in cooking.
