This is genius. Fresh herbs year-round!!

Posted on Updated on

This is not my idea. I found it in the Eating for Two, for One facebook page’s news feed (from Garden Week 2013, in Perth), and had to share.


Take fresh herbs. Freeze them in olive oil. Keep forever and ever and always have fresh things for marinades, dressings, just roasting/frying up potatoes (I have an obsession with roasty veg as soon as it hits scarf season)

A particularly luxurious friend even suggested taking lavender/rosemary, freezing in (rosehip? coconut?) oil and dunking it in your bath. Honestly, I’d probably still enjoy the plain olive oil with parsley combo – but that’s probably taking my phillia a little far for the general population.

With love, from Charlotte

      Thank you! I thought it was brilliant – in Australia, so just missed out on the summer herbs 😦 But next summer, or the next time I buy a bunch of basil for $5 (or something equally ridiculous!)
