For the Love of Herbs

Herbs, Herbs, Herb. I just love herbs. Our relief society invited a master gardener to come and tell us a little bit about herbs. It was great and we even were able to purchase.

Quite a variety to choose from!

Yummy Lemon Thyme cookies. Yes they really were delish!

Home grown honey!

I purchased a few herbs. Sorrell is a wonderful herb that has taste of green apples. Just add to your green salad for a whole new taste.

This will go in a rock garden.

I love rosemary. My favorite recipe is to put a pork roast in the crockpot. Drizzle with olive oil. Sprinkle with kosher salt, fresh ground pepper, lemon pepper, and top with sprigs of rosemary and lemon thyme. Cook for around 6-8 hours. Meat in so tender and flavored well.

I plant lemon verbena just because I love the scent. I pick off a leaf and rub it between my fingers and sniff away. Yummy!

Love the scent of lemon thyme.
