It’s getting warmer and we bought some new herbs and plants on a „gardener’s market“.
From left to right:
Already growing oregano, on the pavement parsley, curley and plain, tarragon and sage and two plants for a hanging basket.
I bought tarragon, because my (current) favourite chef uses it in some of his recipes.. Terragon is more common in the French cuisine than in the German. It is always used fresh, except in Sauce béarnaise a famous sauce in the French Cuisine, you need both. In my newspaper I found an interesting sounding recipe for an
White Asparagus Salad with Ham from Parma
which contains tarragon. Before I planted the tarragon I picked some leaves for the salad. In this dish the aparagus is uncooked, so it might be an Asparagus Aspiration for Kevin.
