My prize winning herbs from the Llanrwst show are now dried and sat on the shelf in a jar,. After a week of decorating the kitchen windowsill and adding a delicious aroma to the kitchen I thought it was about time I did something with them.
There they are on the table at the show.
I decided to chop them finely with the aid of the chopping blade of my Nutribullet to keep things simple, and then popped them into the warm oven of the Aga for a couple of hours to dry out. Once cooled they were put into a jar and labelled .... and boy do they smell good.
A sprinkle of herbs brings so much to life, even something as simple as a pizza, whether homemade or shop bought is a totally different thing with a smatter of herbs amongst the other toppings. These herbs have an intense taste, so only a little pinch is needed to have maxuimum effect.
In a few weeks I will be harvesting more of my fresh herbs to do exactly the same with, it's nice to have a good stash of herbs to see you through the Winter, although for the last few years all my Rosemary plants have very successfully overwintered in their pots and the tin bath outside.
