The reason for the olive oil is to make it easy to seperate the leaves again when frozen. Those bags of cilantro look beautiful to me! lol. The goal is just to keep myself from using all of it this week to make salsa! Now to do some more research on some other things I have been wondering about preserving....I will let you know how it goes.
The above pictures come from a blog called Subsistence Pattern. I wish I had 3 bags worth in my freezer, I just dont think I could have found room for more than the one bag I do have :) The blog I found the pictures on have a garden that is just beautiful, and makes me very excited for spring to come so I can get planting!
