Frozen Herbs

I have heard some people discuss freezing herbs.  To experiment I tried sage and basil.  The basil turned out so awful it wasn't worth a picture, when it thawed it was brown, limp and just plain gross.  Many people swear by chopping it and freezing it with some water.  I do know that when I freeze pesto it has no negative affects.

The sage fared a bit better but not excellent.  The sage on the left is fresh.  After dethawing the sage was a bit darker and the leaves weren't as crisp but the taste was the same.  Sage I would freeze only if you really need to.
