To have fresh chopped herbs, basil, marjoram, chives, dill weed, Italian parsley, etc. all winter long: Wash herbs, shake dry, process in food processor with about 1/2 c. water. Freeze in ice-cube trays, filling to top with additional water as necessary. I dump the frozen cubes into a zip-lock type freezer bag, excluding all air, then seal that bag in an additional bag of the same type, in the same manner.

I've been doing this for a long time. What's really nice about this method is that when the time comes to use them, they are still bright green! (09/13/2006)
Super idea! I get the fresh herbs at the store and never get to use much of it before it goes bad. So, this would be wonderful and basically pre-measured! Thanks! (09/13/2006)
