Storing Summer Herbs
Remember those ice cubes of frozen chopped herbs in olive oil, melted butter and garlic in Summer Herbs Are Here. Now What? For storing fresh herbs like parsley, basil and chives, I store them in ice cube trays with melted butter, olive oil and garlic.
Well, tonight my “herb ice cubes” came in handy.
So what to do with these fingerling potatoes? I wondered.
Then I remembered my “ice cubes”.
After slicing the potatoes in half, I threw them in a saute pan with my little culinary creations.
A stitch in time saved me.
