How do you preserve fresh herbs? This time of year basil, dill, rosemary, cilantro and mint can be taking over the garden so it is important to preserve those flavors to last until next summer! Here are a few simple ways to preserve herbs:

Dehydrate: Place herbs in single layers in your dehydrator. Dehydrate on low for 6-8 hours and then store in mason jars for up to 6 months.

Freeze: Thoroughly rinse and dry herbs and place in freezer safe containers to freeze. Keeps in the freezer for up to one year.

Freeze in Olive Oil: Chop cleaned herbs into ice cube trays, fill trays with 1-2 T olive oil and freeze. When cubes are properly frozen, pop out into labeled bags to grab a cube whenever a recipe calls for it.

Use them: Add fresh herbs to eggs, salad dressings, or on top of fish, soups, or tacos.

How do you enjoy your herb garden all year through?
