Serves 1 - 20 Portions

Am easy and simple way of storing the summer abundance in your flavor ready to use for the cold winter days! Once the cubes are frozen, transfer them to a heavy plastic freezer bag, and take them out one by one as you need them. They will be great for flavoring soups, sauces, salad dressings, etc.
