How to store: Should be kept in plastic bag in fridge for immediate use. You can also freeze or dry to use later.
Freezing: Either freeze branches on cookie sheets, then strip leaves from stems and return to freezer in plastic containers; or mix finely-chopped leaves with just enough olive oil or butter to bind them together. Freeze mixture in ice cube trays. When frozen, pop out cubes and store in freezer bag or plastic container. Don’t forget to label well!
Drying: Place fresh herb leaves on screens in a dry spot away from direct sun to dry. When dried, store in an airtight jar.
How to use fresh : Use three times more fresh herbs than dried herbs in a recipe calling for dried. Fresh herbs will last just a few days.Print This Page
