Fresh Herbs! iWONDER why these little gems don't get more media attention!!!
I have been asked on several occasions, in several different co-ops/markets, in several different locations, and by several different sellers/other customers the same question: "what will you do with all of those herbs?"
From this recurring experience I assume that:
1. most customers are not purchasing solely herbs in their baskets (I also assume that the majority of the U.S. population may not even be purchasing fresh foods based on the fact there are so many gigantic grocery stores selling almost all non-fresh foods!)
2. most people don't think of herbs as "legitimate" fruits and vegetables (which! modern day fruits and vegetables aren't even REAL!)
3. most people are unfamiliar with and do not have much knowledge about real food/nutrition/cooking
For the majority of my life I did not know about fresh herbs! I didn't even know fruits & vegetables were carbohydrates! Omgoshhhh! Embarrassing!
Now I eat fresh herbs almost every day and am inLOVE with the bitter/beautiful taste of fresh herbs from the garden grown from heirloom seeds!!!! MIRACLE!
