How To Freeze Fresh Herbs

  • Author: Lauren Daniel


Easily preserve your favorite fresh herbs with these olive oil-herb cubes. They are perfect for sauteeing veggies, meats, or adding flavor to soups.


  • Fresh herbs
  • Ice cube tray
  • Organic olive oil or melted butter


  1. Chop fresh herbs of your choice, I like to keep mine on the rougher side, but finely chopped works too. Here I froze individual herbs with olive oil in one tray, labeled, and in another a combination of my favorite herbs (think herbs de provence).
  2. Pack the wells of ice cube trays about 2/3 full.
  3. Pour extra-virgin olive oil or melted butter over the herbs.
  4. Cover lightly with plastic wrap and freeze overnight.
  5. Remove the frozen cubes and store in labeled freezer friendly containers or bags.
