Culinary herbs such as these are excellent for adding flavor to many dishes. This specific collection is geared toward those who love to flavour their Italian meals with fresh cut herbs. This heirloom assortment is good to be planted in the current growing season, or in the season to follow.
Care & Storing: If storing the seeds, simply make sure that they are kept in a dry, cool and dark location. Placing them in a ziplock bag and pressing out all of the air is a good idea if they are taken out of their original packaging.
There’s a whole array of Italian dishes that you can use basil for. Start with tomato, basil, and mozzarella sandwiches. Try a fresh tomato and basil quiche, a basil tart, and more. You can also hold the picked leaves in water to spread the basil aroma around your kitchen.
Use chives in garnishes, salads, sandwiches, vegetable stocks, soups, creamy sauces, potato dishes and omelettes, adding the herb to the dish just before serving. Purple-blue chive flowers are also delicious!
Dill is used most commonly in soups and stews or for pickling. Flavor breads and vegetables, enhance seafood sauces, salad dressings, chicken or soups – let your imagination run wild.
Cilantro pairs well with a wide variety of foods such as avocados, beans, cheese, chicken, eggs, fish, lamb, lentils, mayonnaise, peppers, pork, rice, salads, salsas, shellfish, tomatoes, and even yoghurt. You’ll find it tasty as a topping for meat and vegetarian dishes like lentils and rice.
Cress is a nutritious vegetable, so it’s a superb addition to your diet. It’s rich in green proteins and vitamins C, B1, B2, minerals like potassium, calcium, sodium, magnesium, iron, carotene, and mustard oil. But use fresh. Otherwise, it will lose taste. The leaves are a super popular ingredient for sandwiches with whipped eggs, mayonnaise, and salt, so we suggest giving this one a try.
You can add lettuce to any salad possible. Or try as a side to proteins. Our advice would be to eat it as soon as possible — leaves will quickly limp, especially during warm weather.
Mint works well in sweet and savoury dishes, and adds excellent taste whether the dishes are hot or cold. It’s way sweeter than regular mint, so it complements desserts exceptionally well. You can also add mint leaves to soups or stews, too.
This popular herb is used in sauces, salads, and especially soups, reducing the need for salt. Parsley leaves can be dried and stored, but then the flavor is less intense. In terms of taste, it’s best to chop it finely in a food processor and freeze — that will make it most effortless for you to add just a pinch to every dish.
Rocket has spicy, peppery leaves, ideal for salads. It’s a powerful vitamin C source; it contains iron and even acts as a tonic to ease stomach complaints.
Hang bundles of fresh rosemary to dry – this way you’ll be able to use it in a variety of dishes, such as salads and stews. Rosemary complements chicken, lamb, pork, different steaks and fish. Add it to your mushroom or grain dishes as well. Try freezing rosemary in oil in an ice tray and use these aromatic oil cubes in delicious soups.
Spinach is best eaten fresh when it’s highest in nutrients. But it can be frozen for later use in soups and omelets – there’s no need to blanch the leaves. Harvest baby leaves for use in salads or mature leaves to wilt for use in soups and stews.
Store fresh thyme leaves for up to a week in a plastic bag in the refrigerator. Thyme complements beans, cabbage, carrots, chicken, corn, eggplant, fish, lamb, meats, onions, potatoes, soups, stews, tomatoes – it works perfectly with pretty much everything!
