How to Freeze Herbs in Olive Oil is part of my sponsored participation in Mom Blog Tour at the Summer Fancy Food Show (#MomBlogTourFF) on behalf of Wendy’s Bloggers and received Capatriti EVOO products to facilitate my review.
How to Freeze Herbs in Olive Oil
I love to make meals for my family. Now that life is getting a bit busier, there’s nothing like sitting down together at dinner time. But I need as many shortcuts in my cooking as I can get. As you know I’m all about easy. So learning how to freeze herbs in olive oil has been a great time saver!
Little shortcuts can add up to a lot of extra time so if you haven’t tried prepping your herbs this way, do it!
But I’ve learned that choosing a great olive oil and fresh herbs is key to great taste.
Capatriti Extra Virgin Olive Oil is one of the only Extra Virgin Olive Oils to receive the United States Department of Agriculture Quality Monitoring Program Seal to assure us that we’re getting 100% pure, true EVOO.
And you can really taste, smell, and see the difference. When I was at the Fancy Food Show in New York City this summer, I had the opportunity to experience Capatriti EVOO and it really is delicious!
It’s now my favorite EVOO to use when prepping to freeze herbs.
What You Need:
- Capatriti Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- Firm fresh herbs (such as Rosemary, oregano, dill)
- Ice cube tray
What You Do:
- Rinse your fresh herbs and dab them dry with a paper towel
- Fill your ice cube molds up about 3/4 way full with your fresh herbs (they can be diced or small stems)
- Now fill each ice cube mold with olive oil
- Carefully transfer to the freezer and freeze for about 4 hours
- Once frozen, label, and store in air tight freezer bags
- To use: place 1 or 2 cubes in frying pan before frying or sautéing up dinner
