Many healing methods call for the use of herbs. I’ve planted basil, dill, and rosemary this year. I hope to dry some by hanging and others by freezing. That way I can grab an ice cube of basil and pop it into whatever I’m cooking at the time.

How about you? How do you preserve the herbs you’ve grown in the garden? Tell us your tips in the comments. ❤

  1. I have recently discovered frozen cubes of basil at my local Trader Joe’s supermarket which I love to use to make pesto quickly. Now I am wondering if I could make some frozen basil cubes myself with basil currently growing on my back porch… Hurrah for herbs!!!

    1. I don’t see why not. I think if you chopped the basil and then froze it, you would be all right. I would still add water to which I would think you could drain off after the cubes thaw. I think you should give it a go. Good luck. I hope you share if it worked or not. 😀
