fresh summer herbs
Even if you don’t have space for growing summer veggies, anyone with a window and a pot can grow herbs. Basil, mint, cilantro, and dill grow well in containers, and add fresh flavor to practically any recipe. Unfortunately, the freshness of summer herbs is short lived, so proper preservation is key. To preserve flavor and prevent mushiness, roughly chop washed herbs, pack into ice cube trays, and top up with olive oil before freezing. Once frozen, remove the cubes from trays and store in an airtight container until ready to use.
