The Power of Herbs

Here are some interesting herbal facts from Spring Thyme Herb Farm:

  • Herbs have been grown and used since ancient times. The Romans rubbed their wooden dining tables with fresh rosemary and mint for a lovely smell while dining.
  • Herbs have the highest oil content and strongest flavor right before they flower.
  • Fresh herbs and edible flowers are wonderful additions in cooking and as garnishes. Using herbs and flowering herbs in flower bouquets adds beauty, scent and texture.
  • Fresh herbs add fresh flavor to food. When cooking with fresh herbs use 2-3 times as much fresh as you would use of the same dried herb. Don’t be afraid to experiment!
