Last year my DW tried a method she either saw on TV or read about. She washed herbs well and wrapped in damp paper towels and placed in plastic bags. They turned out better than I expected.

We also use one of those food dryer thingies and dry our summer garden herbs. We use a vacuum seal device to put them in jars for storage. We thought they were much better than a jar off the shelf in the store or at least cheaper.

I agree they are a lot better than dried. I have used freeze dried herb in restaurants and it can be a life saver at times. Have you used the ice cube method before?
