My Mum has a fantasic herb garden. In fact, it's overflowing with all sorts of aromatic greenery and she always gives me huge bunches to take home.
I have childhood memories of bundles of herbs and flowers hanging upside down in the attic for months. They would dry in the warmth and would then go into sterilised jam jars for use in the winter. But did you know you can get super fresh herbs out of season by freezing them in their own little ice cubes?

Et voila! Take one out before you start to cook. The ice will melt quickly and the tasty rosemary is ready for that chicken dish. The herbs will be as fresh as the day they were frozen.
