Freezing flowers

On a whim I borrowed The Herb Garden for Cooks by Jeff Cox and Marie-Pierre Moine from the library the other day and then flicking through it I had a minor light bulb moment.

Now, I have tried freezing herbs before and to be honest they either didn’t get eaten before the new crop was available or I was plain underwhelmed. But the idea of preserving borage flowers was too appealing to overlook.

Actually, I decided to freeze some nasturtium flowers/seeds as well. So, after a wash they went in a tub with water 

and into the freezer until one winter’s day the greyness demands some colour. 


About Helen

I have always been interesting in living a more environmentally friendly lifestyle and used to do what I could. Now, I have come to realise that we have reached such a point in terms of environmental degradation that it is more important - perhaps - to focus on building resilience. I therefore do as much as I can to reuse, grow my own and encourage a supportive community, for example. I also keep reading and learning all the time.
