Freezing Fresh Herbs

Well, time for us to harvest the last of the fresh herbs we planted this year. Thyme, rosemary…. all of our favorites. Some I dry, some I freeze. This is how I freeze them for later use.

Chopping the rosemary reminds me that it is time to make one of our favorites – rosemary focaccia bread.

I also like to dry fresh herbs, such as cilantro, using my Nesco Snackmaster Pro.

Freezing fresh herbs

Easy way to store fresh herbs.


  • Fresh herbs
  • Olive oil or melted butter
  • Ice cube trays


  • Roughly chop the herbs if desired.
  • Fill ice cube trays up about 2/3rds of the way.
  • Fill trays up the rest of the way with oil or butter.
  • Put into freezer until frozen solidly.
  • Remove from ice cube trays and place in resealable baggies. Label and keep in freezer until needed.
