Herbs

 

Description:

 

Parsley: Flat (Italian) and curly parsley are intense and can brighten up a dish, especially when paired with a little lemon.

Thyme: A mild flavored herb that is great with savory meat dishes.

Oregano: Wonderfully aromatic - excellent when blended with thyme for a classic tomato sauce.

Cilantro: Bright and intense cool weather crop whose seeds are the spice coriander.

Rosemary: This slow growing, earthy herb is particularly good with hearty foods like savory meats or potatoes.

Tarragon: Defined by a robust anise flavor.

Basil: A fragrant seasoning herb, there are lots of kinds but we stick to classic Italian. A traditional foundation of pesto, Basil is prominent in Italian and Thai cuisines. 


Storage: 

 

Basil: Basil likes to be treated like a flower; store in a glass of water on the countertop out of the sun. Change the water and keep stems fresh for best life.

 

The Rest: Store in the coldest part of the fridge in a sealed container.
