Summer Herbs

Summer Herbs

A friend of mine has a large herb and vegetable garden and was generous enough to share some of his harvest with me.

He brought me about 10 bunches of different herbs including Thai basil, mint, chives, oregano, thyme, sage, lemon basil, dill, bay laurel, and parsley. Needless to say, my kitchen smells amazing.

I know I won’t be able to use all of these herbs within a week or 10 days so I need to store them properly. I can always dry them, but I wanted to find other ways to store them for future use.

So, what to do with all of these beautiful herbs?

Summer Herbs.

I perused my favorite site for some (p)inspiration and listed some my top picks below. I can’t wait to try some of these recipes!
