Summer in Your Fridge

I love buying vegetables and fruits. It reminds me of how we used to buy them always fresh back home in Armenia, before we moved to Canada. Everything back then was available only fresh, never frozen and the market was always beautiful.

Of course here it’s a different story, but I am trying to stay true to my traditions and in general I buy only fresh when it is possible. But I always face the same problem –can’t keep my greens (parsley, cilantro, dill) fresh long enough. Now I want to share with you a very simple way to always have fresh greens in your fridge.

1. First of all, when buying them, always choose the healthier and freshest one. Once you bring them home, it’s better to wash them the same day. Thoroughly wash the bunch, cut the ends and let drain for a little bit.

2. Chop the herbs very finely and put them in the ice-cube tray with a spoon. When all of it is full, pour water over to fill the empty space. Put the trays in the freezer. When it’s completely frozen you can transfer them into a plastic bag and make another batch. You can use herb ice-cubes in everything, in soups or main dishes even.

There is an easier way of doing this – just put the finely chopped herbs in a plastic jar, without adding any water and put it in the freezer. When you need to use some of it, just scoop a little bit with a spoon.

No more money wasted! You will have fresh herbs for months.

Enjoy!

    Just finished reading you blog about the fresh herbs; thank you for writing about this, I always buy fresh herbs and I hate when I have to throw them out. I am definitely going to try the ice tray method, and again thank you for posting this.
