Culinary Herbs

In these days of dulled desires towards current foods, various unhealthy flavors, fast food, canned food and frozen food, our minds will fondly remember the delightful homemade dishes of our grandmothers and mothers, seasoned with these natural culinary plants. These medicinal herbs are good tonic and will strengthen the body after being stressed out.

Those flavors were real.  Our taste buds were always in touch with these natural flavors derived from our herb garden. We can never, ever forget the vegetables, fruits, flowers and sweet herbs that were grown in the garden.

Some culinary herbs are basil, garlic, cumin, turmeric, parsley, lavender, coriander or cilantro, oregano, thyme, chives, and onion.  These are my favourite herbs

Some of the produced in the garden were onions, garlic, carrots, cabbage, thyme, potatoes, sweet corn and many other rare companions of culinary herbs, all grown together in grandmother's garden in absolute consistency.

Of course, this garden was very near the kitchen for easy access. Oh how I miss those days, reaping sweet herbs in my grandmother's garden. 

Culinary herbs are valuable

Also referred to as sweet herbs, they were never seen on the table like cabbage or even potatoes. They were just small parts of the herbal company but were very, very valuable to enhance taste and to distribute their health benefits throughout the body when consumed.

They are good to flavor salad, soup, sauce, stew, meat, fish and much more.  These culinary plants are easy to cultivate so there is no excuse when it comes to growing your own culinary plants.  They are not only for good health benefits and flavor but they will help to save you money.

The various dishes may be prepared with the most healthful, nourishing as well as expensive foodstuff and cooked to perfection but if they lack flavor of sweet herbs then they will surely fail in their quest to satisfy the palate or to bring out that aesthetic taste.

The Caribbean people consider their kitchen incomplete without these herbs.  It would be preposterous not to have them. We were brought up like that.  These herbs would either be fresh, dried, powdered, in decoction and or preserved.

We truly abide by the words of Solomon when he declared, “better is a dinner of herbs where love is, than a stalled ox and hatred therewith.”

I would advise every person to bring back the good old days when our grandmothers' cooking  was never without the good old culinary herbs.
