Herb harvests... appetizers

Growing aromatic herbs
April 29, 2014

Many perennial herbs are ready for the first harvests.

LovageI used lovage leaves and stems instead of dill for the recipe Dill and Onion Savory Muffins. My guests loved them, I can't take any pictures because they disappear from the plate in a moment.

ChervilWith a bunch of chervil, lovage, coriander and chives along with olive oil, almonds and grated swiss cheese I made a flavourful pesto...

Pastries with pesto...that I used for this appetizers: just spread the pesto on a puff pastry sheet, roll it, cut into swirls and bake: quick and delicious!

Rolled sandwich with chivesWith some long enough chives leaves and a lot of patience I prepared again the Rolled Sandwich with Russian Salad, in the picture.

Sculpit omeletteFinally, I used a new sculpit (or silene) harvest for the Sculpit omelette, and I served it cut into slices.

BalmBee balm is rich of giant leaves, and I'm already drying them. I'm harvesting also some mint leaves, and I will prepare again my 10 Herbs tea.

This year some ingredients will be different, because I will add some new herbs that I'm growing.

SelfhealA new entry will be the selfheal, but I'm also growing other new herbal teas.
