Freezing Herbs

MsAlyp | Aug 7, 2008 02:02 PM

I have googled this topic previously and found many people saying to freeze an herb simply spread the leaves (basil, cilantro, parlsey, etc) on a baking sheet so they freeze individually then place in a ziploc.

Try as I might this does none of the great fresh herbs I buy justice. They just defrost into little brown pieces of mush. I know nothing is like just using fresh but lots of times I have left over and hate to waste them, hence freezing.

Does anyone have any tips or tricks?
