Maggie’s top tip – storing herbs

28 November, 2018

Ever buy a bunch of herbs, have left over, place it in the fridge and the following day it is only good for the chooks???

Ideally grow your own and pick as needed! For those not fortunate enough to be able to do this, Maggie shares below her secret of how to store.

“Either wrap your herbs in a damp tea towel before putting them into a container, or if you have a lot to use at once, try chopping them and setting with a little water in ice cube trays to simply flip out and add to things like risotto or pasta sauce. Another option is to blend the chopped herbs with garlic, olive oil and lemon for a simple pesto or chop and fold through softened butter as an addition to steamed or roast vegetables.”
