Store Up Your Herbal Harvest

Preserve this year's bounty for flavor to savor throughout the fall and winter.



My favorite way to preserve many herbs and greens is to freeze them with other foods. When winter comes, my freezer overflows with green beans and summer savory, herby tomato sauce, spinach lasagne, pesto and other good dishes already flavored with fresh-tasting herbs.
Add oregano, savory, thyme, sage and/or chives to a pot for a zesty batch of tomato sauce.
