  • 2 cups fresh herbs chopped
  • Olive oil enough to just barely cover the herbs in the ice cube tray


  • Chop fresh herbs of choice (basil, parsley, oregano, thyme, mint, rosemary, etc). Fill each section of an ice cube tray about ¾ of the way with chopped herbs.
  • Pour olive oil into each section until the herbs are just barely covered. Lay the ice cube tray flat in the freezer.
  • Freeze for at least 4 hours or until the cubes are frozen solid (it may take longer). Remove the ice cube tray and gently pop out each cube. If you use a silicone tray, they should pop out easily. With a plastic tray, you may have to carefully use a butter knife to help you get them out. Transfer the cubes to labeled freezer bags and store for later use.
  • When you want to use one, pop it into a skillet over medium heat and use the melted oil and herbs to cook veggies, eggs, or other foods.

  • In salad dressings
