food:: frozen or dried herbs? It’s time to harvest my herbs from the garden and I can’t decide what to do. Freeze them or dry them? We came incredibly close to our first frost this weekend, so I MUST CHOOSE WISELY ASAP.

I always prefer fresh herbs where possible because I think that with some herbs like sage drying really spoils the flavour so I think I would go with frozen. But dried might be easier to handle if you just want them in a jar to sprinkle in.
Me too! And just to update – the frozen stuff turned out perfect, the dried notsomuch ;(

Well you have your answer then!
I grew herbs for the first time this year so I know nothing.Except that my basil is not as lush as yours.
I would not recommend the drying of basil with the oven method. Total fail. I’m sticking with freezing 🙂
