    What To Do With Your Leftover Fresh Herbs

    What To Do With Leftover Fresh Herbs

    Even if you don’t have much of a green thumb, it is super easy to grow fresh herbs such as basil, rosemary, chives, and parsley. However, you may end up with far more than you can use. Here are a few things you can do with your leftover fresh herbs—even your store-bought herbs.

    1. Share them with a neighbor or friend.
    2. Add them to your salad or smoothie.
    3. Find a new recipe to use them in.
    4. Hang upside down to dry or dry in a dehydrator, and store in a glass container.
    5. Create a custom dried herb mix.
    6. Freeze them in-between wax paper to use as needed.
    7. Chop and freeze in ice cube trays with meat or veggie broth.
    8. Use them to flavor your water or tea.
    9. Add them to homemade soup stock or bone broth.
    10. Even if you can’t find a food use for them, you can use herbs to garnish your plates.

    Benefits Of Fresh Herbs

    You can buy just about any herb your heart desires dried from the grocery store, but fresh herbs have a more distinct flavor profile. However, some recipes will call for dry herbs instead. Either way, the more you cook with herbs—the more healthy antioxidants you infuse in your diet!
