I'm looking for some input for preserving my herbs. I dried drying them last year and it didn't work out the best. I've looked into freezing them and was wondering if anyone has had success doing that. The herbs that I have are sage, basil, flat leaf parsley and rosemary. Any help is appreciated.
Thanks!

Basil I preserve by shredding or chopping and stuffing in ice cubes trays with enough water to cover them. It's not a substitute for fresh by any means, but it does work well for soups and such.

What about sauteed in olive oil and freezing that?

The best way I've found is to finely chop the herbs or crush them using a mortar & pestle. Then I add some sea salt and mix the herbs with some softened butter. I put the mixture in silicone cupcake moulds, freeze until solid then empty the silicon moulds into one large zip-loc bag. I just take a cube out each time I need it and melt into the dish I'm making.

You can also preserve fresh herbs in a jar full of salt, alternating layers of salt and herbs. There's a great video on youtube if you look it up.
