Herb Conserve

The herbs are growing wild around here!  Even though I only spent a dollar per seed packet, I don’t want the fruits of my labor to go to waste.

Are you noticing a trend around here?  I don’t like to waste!  I never knew how strongly I felt about it until I started writing about it.  So glad blogging helped me learn that about myself!

So anyway…I made more herb butter.  It considered drying some, but it’s just so humid!  I couldn’t think of a cool, dry place to dry them properly.

I also have been told that they can be frozen in water in ice cube trays, but I didn’t have any ice cube trays.

Besides, butter is just better than water.  It gives your food even more flavor!

I made them really concentrated.  That way I get more flavor bang for my calorie buck.  Now they are tucked away safely in my freezer, just waiting to kick my dinners up a notch.  Bang!

Do you worry about wasting food?  Or does your quirkiness shine in another area of your life? Open-mouthed smile
