The cilantro bunches they sell at the store are usually more than I need for one meal, and my leftovers usually end up dying in the refrigerator before I need to use them. I don’t like to waste, do you? I found an easy solution that lets me save cilantro so that I can pull it out anytime I need it. All you need is an ice cube tray and a freezer. I think this method will come in handy this summer when my cilantro plants start producing faster than I can use it up.
How To Freeze Cilantro
Step One: Chop your fresh cilantro.
Step Two: Fill each section of an ice cube tray with about 1 Tablespoon of cilantro.
Step Three: Add water to your cilantro-filled ice cube tray and put the tray in the freezer.
Step Four: Pop the frozen cilantro cubes out of the tray and store them in a bag or other freezer safe container for up to 3 months.
The next time your recipe calls for cilantro, simply pull out the necessary number of frozen cilantro cubes and add them to your recipe!
