What are the benefits of preserving herbs in oil?
Preserving herbs in oil reduces some of the browning and freezer burn that herbs can get in the freezer.
It’s also a great way to have herbs ready immediately for winter stews, roasts, soups, and potato dishes. These dishes usually call for oil to start with, and so you can take a cube of frozen oil, herbs inside, out of the freezer and use this as the base of your dish. Cook the onions and garlic in this herb-infused oil and let the taste of herbs spread through your whole dish.
