It won’t be long and the beautiful herbs growing in my garden will succumb to the end of the season.
Before a frost comes I gathered a bowlful so I could preserve them for flavoring meals long after I will be able to walk out the side door and snip them fresh.
In the past I dried herbs by hanging them in bunches.
This year, I thought I would try freezing them to see if they maintained more flavor.
Basil washed dried and ready for freezing
Bagged and ready for freezing
Sage dried and stored in a jar
A few basil cuttings to root and grow on the window sill because there just isn’t anything like fresh basil!
