Taste of Summer in Yellow Squash Chips - The bounty of the garden always comes alive with the baskets of yellow summer squash making their way into my kitchen. I am always looking for new ways to work them into my meal plans so this year I found a way to work them into my snack plan. http://oursimplelife-sc.com
Surprisingly, both cilantro and basil freeze very well. After cutting the leaves, preferably in the early morning while they are freshest, we mix them with a small amount of olive oil... just enough to coat the leaves. They are then packed into freezer bags and frozen for later use. The olive oil makes it really easy to separate the frozen leaves and also adds an extra flavor to the mix.
This is a multi use pasta sauce made from tomatoes frozen from my garden bounty. Economical, easy to make, and more flavorful than store bought. I remove seeds from my tomatoes before freezing for smoother sauce.
