What can you do with herbs? What can’t you do with herbs?
Many herbs make great teas – plop fresh or dried leaves into a cup of hot water and let steam. (mint, lemon balm, bee balm, fennel)
Many herbs are good for syrups (sweet flavored basils, lavender, mint, lemon balm, sage, thyme):
Boil 1 c sugar and 3/4 c water until sugar is dissolved. Add herbs, remove pan from heat, and let steep 30 minutes. Pour through a sieve, press out the herbs, and store syrup in a covered jar in the refrigerator.
Try an herb-infused olive oil with dried herbs.
