How to Make Herb Olive Oil Cubes

Beautiful and fragrant fresh herbs like rosemary, and basil do well by preserving them in olive oil and freezing. Use an ice cube tray for this purpose.

Wash and dry herbs thoroughly, as leaving them wet will result in soggy and discolored herbs.

Fill an ice cube tray with about one teaspoon of freshly chopped herbs.

Pour olive oil on top, about 1/2 way up each tray hole.

Freeze until firmly frozen.

Pop cubes out and store in freezer boxes or bags to prevent odors from other ingredients in the refrigerator from penetrating the cubes and to keep them fresh.

Add cubes to soups, stews and sauce that could use both oil and the fragrant aroma of the herb you’ve selected.
