Home Living : September 13th 2011
4 HLC - HOME LIVING: CENTRAL, Tuesday, September 13, 2011 HOMELIVING Cultivate a taste for herbs Now is the time to grow your own herbs and use them in your cooking. IF there is ever a time to improve your cooking skills and re-ignite your tastebuds, spring is it. With warm weather, you have all the right reasons to step out and grow your own herbs and then enjoy them in your cooking. Herbs are healthy and boost flavour in a variety of dishes. Here's a handy herb guide. Basil No pizza is complete without a sprinkle of basil. As a warm- climate herb, basil flourishes in summer. It does require at least four hours of sunlight a day so plant in an appropriate position. Coriander Synonymous with Thai cuisine, coriander has the added benefits of Vitamins A, B1, B2, C and Iron. It can be grown either in a pot or in the ground, is low maintenance and perfect for beginners. Garlic This herb prefers shorter days and cooler nights. For best results, free- draining soil is recommended. Use quality potting mix. Rosemary A perfect accompaniment to most dishes, this wonderfully fragrant herb is perhaps the hardiest of all herbs. Coping easily with drought and poor soils, rosemary prefers a slightly alkaline soil. It can be grown from cuttings and requires occasional pruning. Parsley Flat leaf Italian parsley prefers a warmer, hot climate, while curly parsley is more suited to a cooler climate. Chewing the parsley leaf can also be a great alternative to breath freshener. Sage Slightly peppery in flavour, sage is ideal for flavouring fatty meats. Commonly used in stuffings, combined with cheese and bread it creates a fragrant, full flavour.
