Cooking With Herbs: Using and storing herbs

Remember when using herbs:

I tend to use a lot of fresh herbs in my recipes. I do have dry on hand all the time for when ever I do not have the fresh.

As a guide: 1 teaspoon of dried herbs is equivalent to 1 tablespoon fresh

Always store fresh-cut herbs in a plastic bag in the bottom of the refrigerator. Do not set them in a jar of water in the sun or they will wilt before your eyes. Store dry herbs in dark airtight jars.

You can preserve the herbs flavors in oils and vinegars for use in dressings. I will get you some recipes. Add them to butters, and use them to flavor jellies.
