|Sweet Basil, Thyme, Marjoram, Chocolate Mint, Pennyroyal, and Peppermint|
Yesterday was the last day of Master Ken's summer herb class. For the past 8 weeks, I have tried to learn as much about herbs as I could. I also have 2 barrels of mix herbs to show the little knowledge I have gained.
I have slowly but surely started to integrate herbs into my cooking. When I pick green beans, I also pick basil to sauté with the beans. I have also made hot tea using fresh marjoram, peppermint, lavender, ginger, and stevia.
I now have 3 different kinds of mint - Pennyroyal, Chocolate Mint, and Peppermint. I am most familiar with the scent of Peppermint. Chocolate Mint doesn't smell or taste like chocolate. Pennyroyal has many medicinal uses and its essential oil is highly toxic.
