Growing Herbs? Here are some suggestions!




A fun and creative way to add flavor to your home cooked meals is to experiment with home grown potted herbs and spices.  For the freshest and fullest flavor, chop fresh planted herbs finely or grind fresh herbs with a mortar & pestle.  Use small amounts of dried herbs because they produce a more pungent flavor.  But why use store purchased dry herbs when fresh is so easy to grow!

BASIL:  Fish, lean lamb, lean ground meats, stews, salads, soups, sauces, fish cocktails and home made pizza.

Basil is easy to grow and fun to harvest.  Once it takes root it tends to take over your yard so placing it in a garden pot will help to contain the growth underground.

CHIVES & GARLIC:  Salads, sauces, soups, lean meats, chicken, turkey, vegetables like baked potatoes (yummy) pork, mushrooms, fish, tomatoes and all kinds of veggies.  Just eating garlic is healthy.  Use in pasta sauces for great flavor or as a base for any stir fry meal.

DILL:  Fish sauces, soups, tomatoes, cabbage, carrots, cauliflower, green beans, cucumbers, potatoes, beets, macaroni, chicken and fish.  Using fresh dill in potato salad is fantastic.  It really adds a ton of flavor.

OREGANO:  Chicken, lean meatloaf, mushrooms, stuffing, potatoes, peas, lima beans, beef, lamb and pork.

SAGE & ROSEMARY:  Turkey, lean meats, chicken, stews, biscuits, tomatoes, green beans, fish, lima beans, onions.  Mild tasting with a strong smell but delicious.
Stuff a chicken with rosemary sprigs and baked in a hot oven.  The rosemary really adds a lot of flavor.  Remember to remove it from the birds cavity before serving.  Both sage and rosemary are hardy growing herbs and planting them in a decorative garden pot is easy to do.

THYME:  Lean meats, chicken, turkey, mushrooms, soups, onions, peas, tomatoes, salads.  Thyme is strong so a little goes a long way.  Potted thyme is not only tasty but beautiful, especially when potted in a lovely ceramic pot.
