Ok everybody, squish together for a photo.
Back Row (L to R): Lavender, Basil, Rosemary
Front Row (L to R): Tarragon, Sage
These herbs live on my back porch. I have never grown lavender, tarragon or sage, but I've had great experience with rosemary, which is a hardy plant that lasts through the winter.
Having fresh herbs on hand enables you to add depth to any dish.
Basil recently made a guest appearance on my bruschetta:
How to cut basil:
1. Stack 4-6 leaves on top of one another.
2. Roll the leaves into a tube vertically.
3. Slice perpindicular to the stem to create thin strips.
4. Drizzle over pasta, bruschetta, garlic bread, or other foods.
