  • Nostalgic? Spinning tops are cool again
    Oh, nostalgic revivalism. We have so much to thank you for. The fashion: big glasses, mustaches, high-waisted pants. The trinkets: typewriters, record players, single-speed bicycles.
  • Saving energy at 3 area churches
    Many pastors urge their flocks to look to the heavens for spiritual power. Now, three Fort Wayne congregations will also look there for electrical power.
  • Sleight of hair
    OK, let's say it right away to get it out in the open: Comb-over. You know the reference, of course.

Freeze herbs as paste

Q. I find it impossible to use up fresh herbs before they go bad, especially cilantro and flat-leaf parsley. I’ve heard they don’t survive being frozen. Is that true for all herbs, or just the more leafy ones? Any suggestions appreciated.

A. The best way to freeze many types of herbs, in my opinion, is to blend them with oil to make a paste, and then to freeze that. Check out the recipe for Basil Paste in our recipe page at journalgazette.net/recipes.
