Do you dream of snipping your own fresh herbs to use in a recipe? It’s easier than you think and saves money, too! See for yourself in the latest episode of Urban Eco. Host Amy Devers shares a bunch of quick tips on growing and using culinary herbs. Here are a few:
- Snip just the amount you need from a variety of places on the living plant. The trimming will stimulate consistent growth for a beautiful, long-lasting plant.
- Tie fresh herbs together in bunches to infuse flavors in soups and stews. This is known as a bouquet garni. Remove the bundle from the pot before serving.
- If you’re substituting fresh herbs for dried herbs in cooking, use one tablespoon of chopped fresh herbs for each teaspoon of dried herbs called for in a recipe.
What’s your favorite herb to grow and your favorite way to use it?
