    This was a timely post as there is a forest of herbs growing in my garden. I have been making batches of frozen pesto for a few years, but it never occurred to me that I could freeze other herbs in the same way. There is nothing sadder than forking out money for poor quality herbs in the winter months. I loved the additional ideas in the comments. Personally, I freeze my pesto in a flat sandwich bag which I break off in pieces all winter long. I even add it to sandwiches. It is heaven.
