With some new items you are probably wondering what to use them for? Here are a few of my favorite ways to use some of the veggies and herbs.
|Brewing Mint Tea|
MintOne of my favorite things in the spring is fresh mint leaves to make mint tea. Take about 4 sprigs of mint place in a quart jar and fill with boiling water. Let steep approximately 5 minutes and sweeten with your choice of sweetener. Delicious!!
A family favorite with this herb is dill buttered carrots. Steam baby carrots until just tender and then toss with butter,sea salt and fresh dill. This is an amazing side that even my biggest carrot hater enjoys!
This is also a family favorite! We love to make kale chips by placing leaves on a cookie sheet and drizzling with olive oil then lightly sprinkling with sea salt. We bake ours for about 15 minutes at 450 degrees. Just watch them close, they will burn quickly! and who wants burnt kale chips? We also like it sauteed with olive oil, salt and maybe some garlic.
