    When a recipe calls for 1/2 a cup of herbs...

    Recipe I intend to cook says '1/2 cup of fresh Sage, finely chopped' So is that 1/2 a cup before or after chopping? as it could make a big difference. Take something like parsley for example which is springy and takes up a lot of room when not cut; the same recipe says '1/2 cup minced fresh...

    Herb oils

    I know we've had many threads on using oils, but does anyone actually make their own herb oils? Having been served some home made parsley oil whilst on holiday recently I am keen to have a go at making some. We have a glut of parsley in the garden, and some good quality olive oil brought back...

    Recipe Miso Soup: Mushrooms, Tofu, Bok Choy, Wine, Thai Basil, & Other Herbs

    This recipe is vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free. The Thai basil in this recipe was home-grown. This idea just sounded relaxing, and the only things I bought when the idea occurred to me were the mushrooms (regular white button ones). Seeing the mushrooms, and knowing what was in my home...

    Compound Butters

    Do you make/use compound/flavored butters? I make them fairly frequently, using fresh herbs during the warm months and dried herbs in the colder months. I usually don't get too complex with them, and favorites are basil and dill. I'll also sometimes flavor butter with dried spices, etc. I'll...

    Do you dry your own fresh herbs?

    In the last few days, a couple of people here have mentioned, in passing, drying their own fresh herbs. I've never done that, nor did my parents do so when I was a child. I'm assuming this could be done using a food dehydrator, or in a low oven, or even air-dried, depending on your local...

    Do you ever put herbs in sandwiches?

    I was thinking today that I don't think I've ever put herbs in a sandwich. But why? I put lettuce leaves, raw spinach leaves, micro greens etc in sandwiches, so why no herbs. I was particularly thinking of coriander leaves as I happen to have some to use up - it was then I realised I'd never put...

    Recipe (Vegan) Tofu, Cashew Nut & Coconut Oil Herbed Boursin

    I have to say that I had my reservations about this cheese. I've made things in the past that used tofu and they were miserable failures. if you've ever just been served a slab of tofu, warmed slightly with no attempt made to do anything with it, not even drain it properly then you'll...

    New herbs

    I ordered (via the internet) some herbs I've never tried before: Epazote, Hyssop and Strawbini. The Epazoti is thanks to @CraigC (see here), a Mexican herb; the hyssop is whim and if anyone knows how to use it please tell me; the strawbini is not really a herb I suppose. Its a type of spinach...

    Freshening up herbs & salad leaves

    @timmyc wrote in another thread about freshening up parsley Well, I knew this trick but had completely forgotten about it so thanks @timmyc!

    Bouquet Garni

    Yesterday I was following a recipe (in the vague sense that I usually follow such recipes) for making onion soup when I came across instructions to tie my herbs together for removal at the end of cooking. Lacking the option, at least easily, to tie them together I ended up chopping them and...
