Today: Keep those fresh herbs going all through fall and winter.
As summer winds down, you might be wondering how you can preserve some of the brilliant warm weather flavors to keep you going through the long, cold months ahead. While the cooler temperatures bring tons of hearty and wonderful food options, there’s nothing quite like a unexpected pop of fresh herbal flavor in the winter.
Luckily, herbs are some of the easiest foods to save. You can preserve them by themselves, or add them to a pesto, butter, or syrup that can be saved for later, and the Food52 community has lots of advice for accomplishing this task.
