I hate to toss fresh herbs, but I hardly ever use a whole bunch before it spoils. Sometimes I will dry them, but if I have a lot of herbs, I like to freeze them into cubes for soups or sauces. then I can just toss them in the pot later for a quick flavor boost.

You don't want to do this with thyme or rosemary, etc. It is best for leafy herbs.

That is way cool! I plan to try this tomorrow.
