Have you ever needed a herb and it wasn’t in season? Or bought a big bunch for a recipe but haven’t used it all and wondered how to keep it? This is your solution, freeze your herbs in ice cube trays with oil and you will have fresh herbs on hand all year round.

Do you have a kitchen tip to share?

PLEASE share with us in the comments below

  • I do this for coriander, but more small portion (make paste and put in freezer bag and lightly devide). It’s very useful just add in green curry or stir fry.


  • Such snazzy idea with herbs – I never ever seem to have leftovers as they always get used.


  • I just cut, clean and freeze in a freezer bag. It works so why not


  • so good to know, my herbs are going crazy at the moment!


  • Great tips – but you can also freeze the herbs in a clicker bag and pull out just a few leaves or whatever when they are out of season. Dill frozen in a clicker bag never fully freezes, retains its flavour and is great for sauces, soups, etc. Easier to keep in a flat bag than in ice cubes.


  • Awesome tip thanks, I love growing herbs and always have heaps left over.


  • Yes, it’s a wonderful idea. I use to freeze lemon juice in ice cubes too. In summer I just pop one cube into my glass of cold water. Easy peasy! :-)


  • A great idea that will come in handy!


  • I love these ideas, how ever we don’t seem to ever have left overs.


  • Very handy indeed.


  • A useful video. But remember freezing destroys cell structure!
