Welcome to Organic Herb, this is a place where I have a collection of great recipes using my favorite herbs. it is also the place where I sell my own organic herbs from my garden.

I’m always trying to find ways to eat healthier, organic and with fresh ingredients and share with others. I know a lot of people can’t grow their own herbs or don’t have the time to do it, so here I offer what I call “amor de mi jardin” meaning “love from my garden”. I spend hours taking care of my herbs and hours in the kitchen making amazing recipes.

My boyfriend and I enjoy very much to make our own pesto. I might even seel it too as it has become quite so popular!

Some notes below on how to take care of your purchased fresh herbs:

Herbs at home:

Once you get the herbs home, it’s best to store them on the top shelf of the refrigerator, which is often the warmest area. They should be wrapped in a damp paper towel and placed in an unsealed plastic baggie. Wash your herbs just before you use them, not before you store them.

Herbs in your meals:

Keep in mind that robust herbs such as rosemary and thyme can withstand long cooking times. But tender herbs such as basil and cilantro should be added right before the dish is done cooking. Tender herbs can also be eaten raw.

Freezing Herbs:

The quality of the herb suffers a bit once frozen. They’re best used in cooked dishes rather than as a garnish or raw. Chop the leaves or use them whole straight from the freezer (do not thaw).

To freeze: Rinse the herbs and pat completely dry. Spread out on a sheet pan and freeze. Transfer the frozen herbs to freezer-proof bags, and freeze for up to 1 month.
