If you ever find yourself with "extra" herbs and don't want them to go to waste, I have a helpful hint for freezing them. This tip works especially well with parsley and cilantro. Just place the herb in a blender (stems can be removed first if you desire) and puree with as little water as necessary to get the leaves to chop. Then pour the mixture into ice cube trays. Once solid, the herb cubes can be frozen in a freezer bag and used as needed. The herb's true flavor is maintained incredibly well, it smells and tastes so fresh. Just pop a cube into a soup, mashed potatoes, spaghetti sauce, or whatever. Or you can put a cube in a strainer and allow the water to melt off, then add the herb to your cooking.
