F R E S H H E R B S . . . it is hard to think about herbs for any length of time without,‘…Are you going to Scarborough Fair? Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme’ running through my mind, but the market is full of herbs, the wonderful herbs of Scarborough Fair plus more. Tarragon, a variety of mints, bay trees, scented geraniums, bee balm, lemon balm, cilantro, Thai basil, other basil varieties, as well as sweet marjoram. Select from fresh, dried, or potted culinary herbs. We also have herb-based soaps, candles, lotions and sachets in lavender and catnip.
Now if you haven’t talked to Sheri Byrne at The Herb Cupboard about H E R B S , you are in for a treat. She is so knowledgeable about growing and using herbs in baking, tea making, and cooking, she is an expert. Here is her never fail graduation punch recipe. Mix two 12 oz cans frozen lemonade with one cup cold water, a handful of lemon balm and a handful of spearmint, steep for one hour in the refrigerator. Then strain out the herbs, and put the mixture in a punch bowl with 3 quarts of ginger ale. Decorate with edible flowers frozen into a floating ice ring. Pretty and refreshing! She also has ornamental yarrows available in a fabulous peachy pink color and a pale yellow.
