Do you know what inspired me to make this herb butter? This video from The Chew, the new food show on ABC. It's all about how to save fresh herbs so they don't go to waste.
I had no idea I could save my herbs by putting them in water in the fridge. After I made this herb butter, the basil I bought at the grocery store lasted more than a week this way! I'm so used to watching my herbs wilt after two days in the fridge and eventually throwing them out, this was such a great tip. I will be putting my unused herbs out like flowers all over my house now!
