Ingredients:

Olive oil or Melted Butter

A Variety of Fresh Herbs, including Cilantro, Basil, Rosemary, Thyme, Oregano, Chives, Citrus Peel, etc

Directions:

  • Melt the butter, if using, and let cool slightly, but keep in a liquid state
  • If using cilantro and/or basil, blanch it for about 5 seconds in boiling water to kill the enzyme that will cause it to decompose
  • Wash and dry all herbs used, then chop
  • Put your selection of herbs in each section of a Perfect Cube Silicone Ice Tray
  • Add olive oil or melted butter to come nearly to the top
  • Freeze until solid
  • Take cubes out of the ice tray and store in the freezer in labeled zippered bags with as much air removed as possible

Notes:

You can also freeze reduced pureed tomatoes or fresh citrus juice.
