Fresh herbs vs dried herbs
For years, I've been using oregano and basil in my Italian cooking. I usually use McCormick or similar --- dried herbs.
I had a small plot in my yard that's been begging for something to be grown in it, and I had a need for mint leaves for a drink. Off I went to buy fresh mint at our local Sprout's (produce store), only to find that it came with its roots! So, I took out some planting soil and planted it in that little plot. That was about a week ago, and that plant is just flourishing!
Off I went back to Sprouts today, and bought one of the same in Oregano and Basil, those two herbs I use so often. My husband told me, "oh, but you'll be drying them."
Can fresh oregano and basil be used in spaghetti sauce, without drying it first?
