Freezing Herbs & Ball Canning Prize Pack Giveaway

Frozen Herb Starter Kit


We grow so many herbs during the summer it’s such a shame to let them go to waste during the winter season. Ball Canning makes it super easy to freeze and dry your herbs to last during the winter months. I am a HUGE fan of their five blade scissor’s. They are the best for cutting fresh herbs.

How to freeze your herbs:

  1. Clean your herbs well, then chop into fine pieces using the five blade scissors.
  2. Measure 2 tablespoons of hears and place them in a tray cube cavity
  3. Add 1.5 tablespoons of cooking medium/liquid such as olive oil or butter. Gently compact the herbs so that they are completely covered by the liquid.
  4. Once done preparing the cubes, close the tray with the snap on lid and place in the freezer.
  5. For best results, transfer the already frozen starter cubes to an airtight sealed container. Try the Ball brand Freezer jar or use Ball brand jars that are freezer safe. Use your herb cubes within 6 months of freezing.

    This sounds awesome! I planted basil this year and need a good way to preserve it (besides in pesto, of course). How delicious this would be.

    I’m teaching myself how to can items and this wonderful set would be a great addition to my canning equipment. So far I’ve made brandied cherries and blueberry jam! Thank you!

    Those are so pretty! Now that I’m headed back to the SAHM gig, I’ve been thinking about doing some canning. This would be a great way to get started! [I also follow you on Facebook :)]

    I’m not sure if my first comment went through, so I’m leaving another one. This set looks great. We have loads of parsley, dill and cilantro from our garden this summer. It would be great to preserve them with this kit!

    I grew up helping my grandmother, aunt, and mother can all the fresh produce from their gardens. After a long hiatus, I’m now back into canning with my own girls and this starter kit would be great.
