Over this past weekend, Sandy was featured not one, but TWO TIMES on Denver’s Channel 9 News with Becky Ditchfield!
In case you missed the segments, you can watch both of them here and read some of Sandy’s tips on preserving your herbs down below:
You don’t have to stuff all the herbs in your mouth at once before their growing season ends. You can actually preserve them in a variety of ways that will give you fresh herbs all winter long.
Here are some of Sandy’s favorites:
- Make herb butter. Cut up the herbs and then mix them with some grass-fed Kerry Gold butter. They’ll keep in the fridge or freezer.
- Freeze chopped herbs with a touch of olive oil and pack them into ice cube trays. Once they’re frozen, pop them out into a bag to save space and flavor.
- Pesto chango! Basil isn’t the only pesto possibility in town. Parsley, cilantro, sage, mint and tarragon make good choices. Even your new cool veggie crops like kale, spinach and arugula make tasty sauces. Here’s a handy link to help you get started making pesto: https://www.ehow.com/how_12341043_make-pesto-herb.html
