If you like subtle flavours, chives and parsley combine well with other herbs without overwhelming your palate and can be used in small or large quantities. For those who love to taste their food, but still want that little extra something, something, use basil, dill, fennel, tarragon, garlic, marjoram, oregano, thyme and mint in no more than one or two teaspoon serving size.

Then there is my taste. I love strong flavours where everything lingers and even has a slight after burn. Use with care and adjust amounts according to your taste. Some herbs are cardamom, curry, ginger, jalapeño, peppers, rosemary, black pepper, mustard and sage.

Everyone’s taste is different. Be careful and experiment with combinations that work for you and your family. Herbs are wonderful; keep them on hand, whether in your pantry or cooler to use at any time or occasion.

Even though herbs are safe, some can cause negative side effects, please always do your homework and check with your holistic healer, natural health care practioner or your doctor before beginning this or any health regimen.
