Herbs are plants that provide aroma and flavour to otherwise bland food. They do not grow as tall as trees and shrubs but do require space, sunshine and care. The key ingredient of herb plant used in most cuisines is the leaf.
Stem and root of herbs are used in spices and medicines. Most herb plants are easy to grow from saplings and seeds. Some often live beyond one season and continue to provide fresh herbs, others need to be planted every year. Fresh organically grown herbs are full of aroma and they make the meals delectable and delicious. Scrumptious meals that delight from your fresh aromatic herbs coming straight from your kitchen herb garden are really appetizing, besides giving the essential nutrients and antioxidants that are necessary to the body.
Ancient Egyptians were known to harvest the herbs and Ayurveda describes more than 200 species of the herbs that were used in form of medicine. Herbs are used as alternative therapy, rejuvenation and medicine from a long time. If you are not using herbs, you are certainly missing something.
