With just a few leaves, herbs can change a dish from ordinary to exceptional. Consider a plain tomato sauce, then add a bunch of basil leaves to create the most delectable pasta sauce you've ever tasted. Substitute oregano seasonings for basil, and you've got yourself a delicious pizza on your hands. Dal can't possibly be dull, right? Isn't it a good deal to add a few mint sprigs, it transforms into something magical: wonderful. Dill weed and seed, or coriander leaves and seeds, are examples of plants that are used as both herbs and spices." The nicest thing about herbs is that they're simple to grow at home: all they need is the correct amount of sunlight. 

Add fresh or dried herbs to your recipes instead of salt if you want to add a lot of flavour to your food without a lot of salt! It's also a low-fat approach to get a lot of flavour. Adding herbs, whether fresh or dried, is a simple way to boost the scent and flavour of any food! 

Cooking with herbs necessitates self-control, too much will kill other flavours. If you use too little or none at all, your food will be insipid. So begin with a small amount and progressively increase it until you obtain suitable proportions. The following suggestions will assist you.

If you have the opportunity, try to produce your own herbs. Because there is no compulsion to consume all of the herbs right once, having fresh herbs on hand reduces waste. Grow your own greens by going to your local nursery garden and purchasing seeds, seedlings, and other gardening supplies. If you don't have much space, you can grow them in pots and place them in open areas with plenty of light. 

Storage Tips 

Although fresh herbs are the nicest, you will undoubtedly need to store your delightful herbs at some point. This can be accomplished in a variety of ways. 

By bunching herbs together, you can dry them at home. Make bunches, tie them together with a tight loop of string, and hang them upside down in a warm, dry location. If you knock them around too much after they've dried, the leaves will easily fall off. 

The best way to keep soft herbs is in the freezer. Pick the leaves, rinse them, and slice them finely before drying them on a tea towel and freezing them. Before putting them in the freezer, press out as much air as you can (be sure to label them). 

They'll keep for a few months and can be eaten straight from the freezer. 

You may also produce gorgeous flavoured oils and salts with your herbs, which make great flavor enhancers. Simply insert a few stems into a bottle of extra virgin olive oil to produce oils. Spread your herbs in a single layer on a baking dish and dehydrate in a very low oven - keep a watch on them so they don't lose their colour – then cool and smash into the salt bottle.
