When you freeze fresh whole herbs like parlsey, 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 you need to freshen up the flavor of a pasta dish or a soup, you can add a cube of parsley.
