This is a great tip for people who love to grow their own herbs. These where herbs that I grew this past summer. Once you have frozen the herbs in olive oil, just pop one out when every you need. Their great for sauteing chicken or veggies.

8 Steps for Freezing Herbs in Oil

Author:  http://www.thekitchn.com

Choose firm, fresh herbs, ideally from the market or your own garden.
If you wish, you can chop them fine. Or leave them in larger sprigs and leaves. Here I froze a combination of finely-chopped and whole herbs such as rosemary, fennel stalk, sage, and oregano.
Pack the wells of ice cube trays about 2/3 full of herbs.
You can mix up the herbs, too; think about freezing a bouquet garni of sage, thyme, and rosemary to add to winter roast chickens and potatoes!
Pour extra-virgin olive oil or melted, unsalted butter over the herbs.
Cover lightly with plastic wrap and freeze overnight.
Remove the frozen cubes and store in freezer containers or small bags.
Don’t forget to label each container or bag with the type of herb (and oil) inside!
