(Recently we featured Stevia. Click
here to read about all the health benefits of this wonderful herb,
particularly for diabetics and those interested in weight loss!)
we advocate the constant use of herbs, we don't advise that you use too many
kinds at once, or too much of any one kind.
To familiarize yourself
with herb flavors, some "lazy day", when you feel experimental, try
Blend 1/2 pound of mild cheddar cheese with 2
tablespoons of sour cream and 2 tablespoons of vodka. Divide the mixture into
small portions and add to each an herb or herb combination. Label the cheese
samples as you mix them. Let them sit for about an hour to develop the flavor.
Then, have a tasting party!
While fresh herbs are best, you can
substitute dried herbs by using 1/3 teaspoon powdered or 1/2 teaspoon crushed
for every tablespoon of fresh chopped herbs.
To reconstitute dried herbs
and develop their flavors, soak them for ten minutes to an hour in a liquid
that will be used in your recipe: water, stock, milk, lemon juice, wine, olive
oil or vinegar. Or, simmer them in butter.
