Easy Way to Prep Herbs.

I have the hardest time keeping herbs fresh. Unless I plan to do a ton of cooking my parsley, mint and/or cilantro usually rot in the fridge.

What to do? I'll tell you what to do!

I've been wanting to do this for a while...

I washed the parsley, gave it a whirl in my food processor, put it in a plastic bag with some water and placed it in the freezer.

Now when I need a touch of parsley for a soup or sauté I can just go to the freezer and break a piece off.

Doesn't need to be said but just in case... Be sure to label your bags if you plan on doing this with mint and cilantro.

This is better to freeze chopped parsley in an ice cube tray and then you can put the frozen cubes in a freezer bag or use a bigger bag and make a thin layer.  I had a hard time breaking off a piece of parsley from the chunk in the bag.

I've also heard a good idea of freezing the herbs in a little bit of water in an ice cube tray then bagging the ice cubes.

If I do this again I will make the frozen parsley a thinner layer or use an icecube tray. it's so hard to break off a piece.
