Add Uncommon Seasonings to your Herb Garden!
No grocery store can compete with the unparalleled flavor of fresh-picked herbs. And almost every culinary herb has healthful benefits, so in addition to improving palatability, they’ll also aid in digestion and overall wellness!
Most of us reach for familiar herbs when putting together a meal – maybe, parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme – but why not expand your culinary horizons? Even in the drizzly Maritime Northwest, our gardens can serve as global spice racks. Not only can these spices be just right for that occasional Southeast Asian or Cuban dish, but they can be incorporated into everyday cooking for a livelier and more diverse taste experience.
In our feature on seasonings this month, we cover the cultivation and common usage of 5 'Uncommon Seasonings' including Shiso, French Tarragon, Society Garlic and Vietnamese Coriander. Use the link below to read the full article.
Designed using these plants:
1. Dahlia ‘Mystic Haze’
2. Carex testacea
3. Salvia x ‘Mystic Spires’
4. Sedum ‘Angelina’
