Preserving Your Herbs

Wouldn’t it be nice to cook with herbs from your garden in the middle of November? Here to show you how to preserve your crop was Karen Kennedy from The Herb Society of America.

Here’s some of Karen’s Tips:

  1. Air Drying
    1. Great for oregano, marjoram, dill, thyme, rosemary, sage, lavender, lemon verbena, cilantro
    2. Bundle with a rubber band and hang upside down on a hanger or clothes drying rack
    3. Put a paper bag over seed heads to catch the seeds as they fall
    4. Or lay flat on a screen or paper towel
    5. Dry in a cool dry place away from direct sun


  1. Freezing
    1. Chop herbs and place in ice cube trays, cover with water or olive oil and freeze
    2. Pop out of trays and store in freezer bags.
    3. Freeze whole on a cookie sheet then bag them up
    4. Be sure to label!
    5. Chives – don’t need water


  1. Make Something that will preserve the flavors
    1. Herb vinegar
    2. Herb tea – dried blends or frozen pops of already made tea
    3. Ice cubes – freeze leaves or flowers in water and add them to beverages
    4. Compound butters – mix herbs with butter, roll up in wax paper into a log and freeze; serve with bread, on vegetables or use in cooking
    5. Make herb paste or pesto – basil or herbs like cilantro and parsley too. Or leave out nuts and cheese and freeze the paste to use for flavoring

Your Health Today

23 million people (close to 13% of the population) suffer with COPD. Here with information to sort fact from myth, was Dr. Robert Kotloff.

Myth #1: Only smokers get COPD

  • While smoking is the primary risk factor for COPD, there is a subset of people who get the disease who have never smoked before. This can be caused by a genetic problem called alpha 1 antitrypsin, or other factors. However, still– about 80 percent of COPD deaths are caused by smoking

Myth #2: There are no effective treatments for COPD

  • While doctors most likely can’t reverse the disease completely, they can control symptoms and prevent further damage to the lungs. There are medications available –and the Cleveland Clinic is currently involved in a new trial that involves putting coils in the lungs through a bronchoscope. The coils restore the lungs elasticity and reduce the overinflated size.

Myth #3: Those with COPD can’t exercise

  • Shortness of breath from COPD may make it more difficult to be physically active, but exercise is good for those with the condition. Many with COPD are referred to pulmonary rehabilitation, where specialized respiratory therapists teach breathing techniques, exercises and proper nutrition to make living with COPD easier.
