Freezing fresh basil


I love fresh herbs!

I add them as much as I can to my dishes. We've been growing basil on our balcony since some time and we we've got lots of basil from only two plants. I was looking for a ways to store my basil and I decided to try with freezing my basil. It's quite easy but takes some time.

Follow those 5 easy steps

1. Remove the basil leaves from the stem and blanch them in boiling water for about 2 seconds
2. Transfer the leaves to a bowl with cold water and ice cubes.
3. Dry completely using kitchen paper towel.
4. After your basil is completely dry, put each of leaves spectrally on a plate and put into freezer.
5. After 30 minutes take your basil out from the freezer and store in a freezer-safe container.
