Learn how to stock your pantry and freezer with fresh herbs for winter cooking and holiday gift giving with time-saving methods and recipes. With Betsy Williams of The Proper Season
Gardens and farm stands are brimming with fresh herbs. Now is the time to stock your pantry and freezer for winter cooking and holiday gift giving.
Imagine lining your cupboard shelves with jewel-toned bottles of herb vinegars, golden brown herb mustards and sparkling jars of herbal jellies. Picture containers of herbed butters, bags of rosemary walnuts and bottles of herb pestos filling a corner of your freezer. Not enough time? Too much work? Not true. Mrs. Thrift never does anything that takes too much time!
Learn which herbs are best to dry, which to freeze. Mustards, butters, vinegars, jellies, salts, sauces and spreads can all be quickly made and then stored for winter enjoyment.
Bring your taste buds. We will end with a little taste of everything! Recipe sheets included.
