My herb bed is being naturally composted with the falling leaves , but some of my herbs are still growing , the parsley is actually thriving since the weather has been cooler and we've had so much rain.. Earlier today I harvested a basket full of parsley to put in the dehydrator , after drying it , I had 1/2 pint of parsley. I also gathered lemon balm and spearmint to dry for herbal tea.
I found a recipe for herbal flavored butter awhile back in Mother Earth News , so tomorrow I plan to make some herbal butter . Basically you let the butter soften , chop some chives , garlic and parsley , then just blend the chopped herbs into the soften butter and refrigerate. I'll be using the butter on bread and I plan to try some of the butter in grits. How do you use parsley or lemon balm ?
