Fresh herbs are powerful. Their aromatic oils have been used for centuries to infuse foods, drinks, oils, and soaps. Our palates respond joyfully to their scents, which all play a role in our enjoyment of certain foods and drinks.
Let’s say you’ve returned home from the grocery store, where you had to buy an entire bunch of fresh herbs, when you only need a little bit for a recipe. Or maybe you’ve been working hard in your garden, and you’ve been rewarded with beautiful, fragrant fresh herbs. Either way, it’s a shame to let those herbs go to waste, so why not use them to flavor your food and your drinks?
