Fresh herb shaker

Makes 1 shaker

Ever wondering what to do with all the fresh herbs in your garden or how to use up fresh herbs you buy at the store? Here is your solution: freeze them. The herbs listed below freeze very well and can be used to flavour soups, dressings, salads and entrees. They have much more flavour than the dried versions. Using herbs instead of salt can help you control sodium intake. (For more ways to reduce salt, read Shake your salt habit.)


Equal measures of:

  • Sage, finely chopped
  • Thyme, finely chopped
  • Oregano, finely chopped
  • Rosemary, finely chopped


  1. Combine herbs in a small bowl and spoon into a spice shaker or plastic airtight container. Store in the freezer.
