Tips for Storing Herbs

Updated: Sep 12, 2019

At Dragonfly's Early Learning we have planted a herb garden for the children to nurture. During 2019, we once again planted herbs and harvested enough for our cooking and some to send home. It is a great way to introduce "green" to the children and to interest them in the gardens.

Maggie’s Beer's Top Tip for Storing Herbs

Ever buy a bunch of herbs, have left over, place it in the fridge and the following day it is only good for the chooks??? Ideally grow your own and pick as needed! For those not fortunate enough to be able to do this, Maggie shares below her secret of how to store.

“Either wrap your herbs in a damp tea towel before putting them into a container, or if you have a lot to use at once, try chopping them and setting with a little water in ice cube trays to simply flip out and add to things like risotto or pasta sauce. Another option is to blend the chopped herbs with garlic, olive oil and lemon for a simple pesto or chop and fold through softened butter as an addition to steamed or roast vegetables.”
