Harvesting & freezing Coriander 🌱💚

June 7, 2017

We just had some fantastic sunny weather in London. It was short lived as today it is pouring with rain and very windy.

My herb garden absolutely loved the sunshine and the mint, coriander and parsley my darling father planted not long ago has gone wild. The mint and parsley we use often in salads etc, but coriander is used less often so I wanted to utilise it before it wilted away.


Searching online for methods to harvest and store coriander leaves I opted to chop and freeze the leaves, this way it would be available to add to home cooked meals over the year ahead.

I already use frozen chopped onions and garlic regularly. Not only does in make the whole cooking process quicker, the vegetables are always fresh and ready to use.

So why not frozen herbs.

Ingredients –

  • Fresh Coriander leaves (take off thick stalks, wash thoroughly and pat dry with paper towel)
  • 2 tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive oil

Method –

  • Finely chop the coriander leaves in a food processor or by hand
  • Add the olive oil and continue to blend until it forms a thick paste
  • Carefully spoon the paste into an ice cube tray
  • Place in a freezer overnight
  • Once frozen remove from the ice cube tray and place in a sealable bag
  • Store in freezer and use when needed.


Ideas for using coriander in cooking –

  • Add to oven baked salmon with lime & chilli for a tasty crust
  • Add to chicken with garlic and soy sauce for a delicious marinade

Yummy 😋
