Preserving culinary herbs and edible flowers
June 28, 2013
If you grow culinary herbs, it is presumably because you love to cook with them. Apart from growing them to eat, they enhance any garden, and look marvellous when grown to perfection, and the scent as you brush past them on a summer’s day is sheer delight. They are the simplest of plants to grow (being closer in nature to ‘wildlings’) and easy to preserve in a number of ways. Yet I wonder how many shop-bought jars languish on larder shelves, purchased because one needed a pinch of this or that in some recipe. They soon lose their savour.
