  • Ice cube tray


  • Fresh herbs
  • Organic olive oil or melted butter


  • 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).
  • Pack the wells of ice cube trays about ⅔ full.
  • Pour extra-virgin olive oil or melted butter over the herbs.
  • Cover lightly with plastic wrap and freeze overnight.
  • Remove the frozen cubes and store in labeled freezer friendly containers or bags.
