So Many Delicious Choices
These dried herbs are lovely to behold, fragrant and pungent, and delicious in foods or all by themselves in an infusion. This blend is Mama's Bouquet Garni.
Herbs and spices enhance the flavor and vitamin value of foods, and adding them is a healthy way to make even quickly prepared meals more nutritious. While fats, salts, sweeteners, and synthetic flavors may satisfy your desire for taste in the first few bites, they can leave you numb later, Herbs add no calories but give your dishes complex layers of flavor with every forkful. And if you’re watching your weight (is anyone not?) or have to follow a special diet, use herbs to cut out fats, salts and additives without adding calories and cholesterol or synthetic flavors.

What Are Some of the Health Benefits?
Cottage Spicery products are packaged with information about each ingredient’s nutritive value or use. In general, many herbs and spices contain important chemical compounds that our bodies need and which often aren’t supplied in our modern diet. These nutrients are largely absent in processed or fast foods, and some vitamins and minerals have been depleted in our food crops by poor farming practices. Mother Nature concentrates lots of vital compounds in the plants and trees that herbs and spices come from. And then she also makes them taste fantastic, so we’ll enjoy getting healthier!
