Freezing Cilantro

Did you know you can freeze fresh cilantro?  I’m sure you can freeze other herbs  too, but I’m trying cilantro first.  Of course, cilantro doesn’t grow in the mid-Atlantic in February, but we bought some at the grocery store for a recipe anyway, and ended up with a ton left over.  Fresh herbs always seem to come in bunches much larger than what I can use before they go bad and I really hate letting good food go to waste.  So I chopped up the rest and put 2 tablespoon portions in small bags to save for when we need it again.  I love a good food-saving tip!
