Jane Griffiths’ Top Tip for Preserving Fresh Garden Herbs

Jane's Delicious HerbsJane's Delicious Gardening Calendar 2014With winter set in, Jane Griffiths, author of Jane’s Delicious Herbs, has some hints on how to preserve your fresh herbs.

Griffiths suggests preserving your herbs in olive oil, which can then be stored in a dark place and used as you need. The aromatic oil can also be used for cooking, as long as you top it up after using it.

Before frost hits your herbs, such as basil, harvest the leaves and pack them into bottles and add olive oil. Shake to remove air bubbles and make sure the top of the herbs are covered with oil otherwise they can go mouldy.
