Lavender is one of the most well known and most loved herbs for its scent, flavor, spiritualism and healing benefits.
A symbol of joy and happiness, oregano is a well known herb in most kitchens.
The delicate flavor lends itself to French and English recipes as well as Italian and Greek.
Me, I just love using it in brines, when I am cooking salmon, or when I am doing a slow cooked pork shoulder or with duck breasts in a port wine sauce.
The mere mention of cocoa powder and thoughts of cakes, cookies, and souffles swirl through my mind. Just opening the jar and smelling it brings on a feeling of utter enchantment and delight.
