Cilantro Ice Cubes & Heart Stick Coaster
Today I did a little catch up on a previous project. I tend to get enough done to make a post, and then I get wrapped up in making my blog post, that I don’t fully complete my project.
Another thing I did today was make good use of the leftover cilantro from yesterday’s chili. I hate having to throw away herbs because I didn’t use them in time before they rot. To keep the cilantro overnight (or for a couple days), I kept the stems in a cup with water.
This morning I cleaned out two ice cube trays, and then I plucked (with my husband’s help) the leaves off the cilantro. We jammed a ton of leaves into each cube, and we almost filled a tray of twelve.
Then we added some water to help it freeze together. Once they are solid cubes I will put them into a freezer bag to store until the next time I want to cook with cilantro!
