How to Cut up Leafy Herbs

Are you growing herbs in your garden this summer? Nothing tastes better than garden-fresh herbs, except maybe garden-fresh tomatoes, peas, lettuce, berries,.......

Here is a quick and easy way to cut up herbs. I'm using fresh basil in this demonstration. Pick the amount of basil you need.

Stack leaves, largest on bottom, smallest on top.

Roll leaves together lengthwise.

Cut these rolled leaves into thin strips.

Ta-da! Uniform pieces, quick and easy. 
Bon appetit!

  1. I read somewhere that if you have more fresh herbs than you can use, chop up the leftovers finely, place them in measured amounts in old fashioned ice cube makers (get them at a dollar store) and cover with water. Once frozen, pop the cubes of ice-herbs out and store them in a bag in the freezer. Then, when you need some herbs,pop them in your soup or defrost your cube...sound good, eh? I am not a member of your stake, but have a vested interest in your wonderful president (my sister.) I enjoy this blog, and have shared this site with our own stake RS prez, and challenged her to provide something like it. So far, no response. Ah well!
