Dorot herb review

I love cooking!  I'm always using the Mrs. Dash seasonings and some times it just doesn't seem like enough flavor in the food.

This is where Dorot herbs and Pop and Cook come in!

They are in small little cubes that you freeze and when your are ready to use them, you just pop how many cubes you want to use (each cube is 1 tsp) out into your food!  Super easy!




I received a TON of herbs from them!  I gave some of our friends some as well.

I love these.  I have used all of them in some sort of dish.  My favorite is the garlic and the cilantro.  These two together in a chicken dish is AMAZING!  I only use on cube and it's perfect!  The frozen herbs are full of flavor and they small wonderful.  Scott could smell them when he came home from work.

They chop the herbs and freeze them while the herbs are still juicy to give them the natural flavor, they do not add anything to them, so they are just herbs!

Dorot also has a wonderful line of sauces and marinades (which I will have to try sometime)

Here's a little bit about them from their website!
Dorot Garlic & Herbs specializes in developing, producing and marketing of frozen seasoning products all over the world. 
The company was established in 1992 and is fully owned by Kibbutz Dorot in the southern part ofIsrael. 
The kibbutz has more than 3,500 acres of field crops – garlic & herbs – which are picked, and then immediately chopped, packaged and frozen in a unique fast freeze process, maintaining their taste, freshness and nutritive value. 
Over the years, the company has grown and expanded, and is today the largest supplier inIsrael of fresh frozen seasoning products. 

So, if you are looking for fresh herbs that aren't going to get you all messy chopping and won't add more mess to you cooking, then check out Dorot herbs.  You can find these at Walmart!
