Ingredients

  • STAR Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Fresh Herbs (basil, rosemary, sage, thyme, oregano, etc...)

Instructions 

  • Choose firm fresh herbs.
  • You can chop up the herbs or leave them in larger sprigs and/or leaves. I always do a combination.
  • Fill the ice cube compartments about 2/3 full of herbs.
  • Pour extra-virgin olive oil, covering the herbs.
  • Top the tray with plastic wrap and freeze for several hours or overnight.
  • Remove the frozen cubes from the ice trays and store in freezer bags.
  • When ready to use, remove a cube from the bag and transfer it to a frying pan.

Notes

Rinse, clean and thoroughly dry the fresh herbs
Keep in the freezer
Use within couple of weeks
