  • Basil oil should last for a good few months. Fresh basil will only last about a week but if it’s infused in oil the oil should keep for up to 6 months we believe.

  • Finally Thomas, I have a question for you. I’m 60 and have been cooking since I was 12. Other than salt, pepper, garlic and onion powder, I have no idea which herb to use for what! I think you are amazing Thomas!

  • Great video. I love how candid the video is. I has a certain charm that is perfect for youtube, not that over-rehearsed “perfect” takes that you usually see on tv. I honestly love it.

  • One more pesto tip: After you’ve frozen your pesto overnight in ice cube trays, transfer them to a tightly sealed freezer bag. They’ll keep for months.

  • I bought fresh coriander and kept it in the fridge for more than a week.
    Sure, it discolors, but the taste and aroma is the same.
    I keep fresh parsley in the freezer cause I never use it as a garnish. I mix it in the food while its still cooking so no need for it to be fresh.

  • one of your ways to store basil cant be “grow basil” i have a huge basil plant and am looking for ways to store the summer harvest. i need a method that lasts months. like dehydrating. two stars.

  • Great Tips there Hilah (unusual name) have to try the first two as already do the butter one. Thanks.

  • That was a nice video with some really good information. And I wanted to just let you know that glass should never go in the freezer. It could explode when the door is opened. So make sure you don’t encourage people to do that. I must admit I do put white wine in the freezer but set the timer 10 or 20 minutes. But never freezes it just gets really chilled. Great job though

  • I havea a kitchen conundrum: how can I replace oil for butter to make a recipe dairy free? And also which kind of oil can I use in different recipes, please? Thanks!
