Storing Herbs

My mother taught me this technique for storing herbs and it works very well.

1. Chop a desired amount of herbs using a knife and cutting board or a food processor.
2. Put herbs into a large plastic baggy or bowl and add a small amount of oil, just enough to coat the herbs.
3. When herbs are lightly coated with oil, spread them out on a cookie sheet
4. Place cookie sheet in freezer and let herbs freeze
5. Remove cookie sheet from freezer and place frozen herbs into an air-tight freezer container
6. Place back in freezer for future use.
7. Use frozen herbs in same quantities as you would use fresh......enjoy!

Note: Do not keep oil/herb mixture in refrigerator-botulism could develop if not kept frozen!
