If you are the sort of person who always likes to use fresh herbs from the garden now is the time to plant some in pots and place them on the windowsill. This will ensure a continuous supply throughout the winter. The five herbs have been selected by Anna Burke and are described with culinary and care tips in her article which I came across on Dave’s Garden website.
Craving fresh herbs this Thanksgiving?It might be getting a bit chilly outside, but that doesn’t mean you can’t harvest fresh herbs for your Thanksgiving feast this year. If you haven’t already moved a selection of your herb garden indoors for the winter, now is the perfect time to pick up a few container herbs to get you through not just Thanksgiving, but rest of the cold season as well.
You can pot up some herbs from your own garden, or you can see if there are any end-of-season sales happening at your local plant nursery. Keeping herbs around the house freshens the air and keeps your spirits bright. The right herbs can also spruce up your Thanksgiving feast, no matter what’s on the menu.
Rosemary is my favorite winter cooking herb. It grows well in pots and can even be shaped to resemble an evergreen for those of you who celebrate Christmas. You can serve it as a garnish or grind it into a paste, and your guests will be tempted to crush a sprig between their fingers whenever they pass.
Rosemary is versatile. It is one of the essential ingredients in most ready-made poultry herb mixes, and it can also be used in other dishes besides the turkey. Try adding it to roasted vegetables, like potatoes, and don’t forget to put some in the stuffing.
