Lovelight Herb Farm specializes in culinary herbs
By: Nicole Banks
As an avid home cook I know that using fresh herbs can take a dish from mediocre to amazing. Herbs are used in cuisines spanning the globe and the unique combinations of herbs can make dishes come alive! Lovelight Herb Farm specialized in culinary herbs from dozens of cultures allowing you the ability to have the herbs conveniently growing in your garden.
Culinary Herbs are a great addition to everyday meals
Culinary Herbs are an easy addition to enhance everyday meals. With a quick trip out to your garden, you can kick up the flavor easily! From adding chives to your scrambled eggs in the morning, tarragon to your out of the box stroganoff, or parsley for a fresh finish to a great steak dinner, adding culinary herbs to your dishes can make any home cook’s meals taste like they’re from a restaurant.
How do you use culinary herbs?
Culinary herbs can be added to dishes as they cook or at the end, depending on the herb and flavor profile that you’re looking for. Culinary herbs are extremely versatile and combinations of herbs are known as familiar ethnic profiles. Traditional herb combinations include herbes de provence, bouquet garni, italian herb blends, and poultry seasoning. These fresh herb combinations can be a game changer for a home cook!
Learning when to add the culinary herbs can be important. One easy way that I’ve used in the past is if the stem is thick or woody, to cook it with the food, if it’s a thin stemmed plant, add it at the end. Consult some of our recipes for ideas and to learn more about utilizing herbs in your cooking.
Is it easy to grow culinary herbs?
Yes! As it turns out, culinary herbs are some of the easiest plants to grow and many come back year after year. This means that you can build a robust herb garden that can be highlighted with perennials to count on while adding your favorite annuals interspersed between them. This mix and match gives you the ultimate herb garden and fresh herbs throughout the year!
