Freeze Herbs and Other Fresh Seasonings
Do you like using fresh herbs in your cooking, but never use a whole pack? Waste money on those jars of ready chopped seasoning?
Save money and time by:
Fresh Herbs - Finely chop
Fresh Garlic - Finely chop/press/grate/shred
Fresh Ginger - Finely chop/grate/shred
Citrus Rind - Finely chop/grate/shred
Stock & Sauces - Remove any surface flotsam/fat
2) Press/pour into an ice cube tray and freeze
3) Transfer to baggies and label before storing in the freezer
Ginger & Garlic Paste
I purée equal amounts of fresh garlic and ginger. In a storage container this will last forever in your fridge, easy to add these healthy ingredients to salad dressings, stir fry or other dishes!
How to store FRESH Ginger
I peel the fresh ginger, wrap it up in cellophane in big pieces, and then when I need it, I just GRATE some of the fresh stalk into the pan. This works very well. I always used to let the fresh ginger ROT by mistake. I heard this from Doctor Zorba Pastor on Your Health (Radio Show)
The soda craving
I broke this habit months ago and only have a soda once or twice a week now. Strated by only drinking diet sodas, then organic sodas, and now an occasional.
Make Water Fun!
I add chopped mint leaves (fresh, not dried!), slices of fresh ginger and slices of fresh lemon to my water. I make up a bunch of bottles and have them in the fridge ready to go. The mix makes my water taste lovely without adding sugar, articicial sweeteners or acids that would upset my stomach.
