Time to Freeze the Herbs!

Alas, it's oh so sad to see the summer end...but so it is.  It's time to harvest the rest of the herbs and freeze them for winter soups.  It's easy enough to do - the hardest part may be finding an ice tray.  Muffin tins will work in a pinch!  Just harvest your basil, oregano, thyme and such separately, chop and spoon a tablespoon or so into ice trays with a bit of water.  Store in plastic bags once frozen (and label as it's easy enough to forget what's what).  Then when it's soup making time, just pop a cube in.  You can also make pesto and freeze it or you can dry them. You'll be able to enjoy a bit of summer all year!  Enjoy!
