Basil

Basil leaves have a light, fresh, and spicy flavor. They are the perfect addition to garnish an italian meal, muddle in a beverage, or add the perfect kick to your soup. Basil suits fish, poultry, red meat, salads, and omelets well. Add it to practically any dish for a nice hint of flavor.

Chives

Chives, or green onion as they are commonly known, can add a nice flavor to a variety of foods as well. They are perfect to toss into your scrambled eggs, mashed potatoes, or cheesy casserole. They are also a nice addition to any mexican dishes for a fresh flare of flavor.

Mint

Mint leaves are fresh, delicious, and well, minty! They are perfect for fresh drinks like mojitos, moscow mules, or fresh mint tea. They can also add flare to smoothies. They can also add a nice twist to your typical pasta dish, or to a bean salad

Parsley

Parsley is an italian herb with bold flavor. It is a nice garnish to pasta dishes or casseroles, but can also be chopped thinly and baked into meals such as stews, omelets, meatballs, and more.

Coriander

Coriander is the perfect spice for pork products. Coriander is produced by the cilantro plant. When your cilantro has matured it will sprout flowers that hold the coriander seeds. These seeds can then be ground up and used as a rub or spice.

Dill

It houses a bit of a bitter flavor. It is perfect for soups, potatoes, and canning pickles. You can even sprinkle it on cucumbers for a healthy snack, or use those cucumbers to add flavor to a turkey sandwich.

Fennel

Fennel is an underutilized spice. Fennel leaves have a sweet flavor. They are nice to accent flavors in pork or veal dishes, are a very healthy way to flavor soups, and can even be used in salad for an extra crunch. The seeds have a sharp flavor that make them the ultimate accomplice to spicy sausage.
