Spices and Herbs

Managed to get one more good cutting of herbs today, before starting to weed the herb garden:

  • 2 huge bunches of peppermint
  • 2 bunches of thyme
  • 1 big bunch of rosemary
  • 1 bunch of oregano
  • 1 big bunch of sage
Fresh herbs hung up to dry in the kitchen

We also made a batch of spiced apple wine – the recipe called for cloves, broken up cinnamon sticks and shredded ginger root.  Can’t wait to see how this will turn out – may we’ll have it ready for next year’s Thanksgiving holiday.  In the meantime, I am making do with mulled hot cider – actually sipping it right now and it is delicious!
