All About Herbs

The underdogs of the food world, especially in the United States, herbs are often relegated to simple decoration or thought of as the lesser of the overall spice world. How unfortunate for herbs, as their subtle power can be used to effectively mute flavors or round out a whole dish. They are the quiet heroes, taken from the leafy green or flowering part of plants and eaten either fresh or dried. Herbs have been part of the human diet for longer than recorded human history! It is high time they get some of the attention they deserve!
