Take your home cooking to the next level by incorporating fresh, homegrown herbs! If you have been wanting to grow and cook with fresh herbs, this combination gardening book and cookbook is your ideal guide to getting started.
You don't need lots of space for a huge herb garden, and you don't need to spend a lot of money on fresh herbs at the grocery store or farmers' market. With Homegrown Herb Garden, you can choose the herb or herbs you will use the most and build your herb garden around them.
The book is divided into two sections, the first is devoted to gardening and the second to cooking. The authors chose the most widely used herbs—including staples like cilantro, dill, tarragon, parsley, rosemary, and sage—and added a few of their favorites that may be less familiar to you, such as chervil and Thai basil.
In "In the Garden," you will learn when to plant, where to plant, how and when to harvest your herbs, and how to dry and store those you don't use immediately in the kitchen.
In "In the Kitchen," you will learn about flavor pairings and how to use each herb in numerous ways in sweet and savory dishes and through the use of all cooking techniques.
Choose your favorite herbs, learn to grow them successfully, and never be at a loss for what to do with them!
