Herbs...


A few weeks ago, we bought a little purple basil plant at the farmer's market.  It has been happily sitting on our step since then and tonight I added it to my pasta sauce.  Yum!  At the last minute, I garnished everyone's plate with a little bit of the basil and it really added something special.  I think that I am going to move the basil to my kitchen counter so that I can be sure to use it more frequently.  I'm also going to keep an eye out for some cilantro and flat leaf parsley to round out my kitchen herb garden!  I think that they will really add something to my cooking that my jars of dried herbs don't. 

Do you use fresh herbs in your kitchen?

Yes, I'm really enjoying my new backdoor herb garden. If you buy little pots of chives, parsley and rosemary, they'll grow very nicely. Cilantro is very easy to grow from seed -- and then it keeps coming up each year from the seeds the plants produced the year before. Last year I bought some southeast Asian herbs, and enjoyed putting them in stirfries and soups.

I hope to someday have a real garden like you do, but this year was not the time. It will be nice to have some of these things come up year after year!
