Freezing Your Fresh Herbs in Olive Oil For Preservation

borges olive oil purelyfresh thymes ice cubes freezing
Do you enjoy using fresh herbs in your cooking? What do you do with the remaining herbs if the recipe calls for just a small amount? Many times, the balanced stock will just wilt and gone to waste after a few days. They will finally end up in the bin, won't they?

Well, here's a trick to preserve your fresh herbs............., be it Dill, Thyme, or Rosemary!

In my family, we cook with the #Borges Extra Virgin Olive Oil as a healthy alternative, although we do use the more economical cooking oil such as Knife Brand when deep-frying. For those residing in USA or Europe, #Knife is the top-selling brand of cooking oil in both Malaysia and Singapore, and its peanut oil is perfect for deep-frying because of its high smoke point and neutral taste.

With whatever leftover herbs in the Olive Oil Ice Cubes, they are always ready to be used. Cook the herb-infused olive oil with garlic or onion as a base for your dishes, and let the scent of your favourite oil envelope your food!

  12. I always buy organic olive oil directly from the people who produce it and often I pay up to ten times what it costs in stores, but it is so worth it.

    This is a great tip! Olive oil not only preserves vegetable but it enchances its taste.

    In addition, I usually preserve both cheese and fish (for example left over fish from lunch) in olive oil and keep it in the fringe...that way the fish doesn't get dry and there is no bad smell in the fringe. We sometimes even make our own tuna in a jar....that's delicious!!!!

    1. Ivana, these days more people are switching to organic stuff & prices are definitely dearer. That's some cool tips you've shared here, dear. I've yet to try preserving cheese in oil tho; I always store them in the freezer :D

  13. This is a wonderful tip. I am sure you know that many readers thought I am weird to drink olive oil straight from bottle regularly for a good night's sleep. So I believe your idea that it works on preserving the herbs as olive oil contains so much goodness!
