Make Your Thanksgiving Fresh

Fresh herbs explode with flavor and aroma.

OK…Thanksgiving is here, and its the most important holiday of the year so push aside all those bottles of dried herbs and use fresh herbs instead. Your food will taste better for it. Fresh herbs explode with flavor and aroma. Herbs like Rosemary can keep up to 2 weeks in your refrigerator and sage keeps a long time too. For more fragile herbs like Basil, try placing the bunch in a shallow glass of water, then into your fridge, for longer life.

Try to use the herbs toward the end of your cooking as cooking will deteriorate their potency. In the case of the turkey I add fresh herbs in the beginning and right at the end, to bring alive those vibrant flavors not to mention the beautiful bouquet they add to the dish.

This holiday may your turkey be juicy and your feast delicious!
