“I frequently land up using a portion of a bunch or pack of herbs, such as cilantra, parsley, dill, thyme, mint, chives, fennel or oregano. Then a week later I find the leftover herbs sadly rotting in the back of the fridge :-( and have to throw them away. Here's a really simple and cost-saving solution. All you need is an ice-tray or a few small containers.”
