Can I freeze cilantro?

When you freeze fresh whole herbs like cilantro, the leaves turn black and when thawed are wet and limp. My preference is to puree the leftover herbs with just a little oil and freeze the puree in ice cube trays. Then, when I'm making a pasta dish or soup In the dead of winter, that little block of cilantro makes dish taste like summer!
