Grow Your Own Garnishes for Holiday Meals & Celebrations
Make your holiday meals just a bit more special and nutritional with homegrown garnishes.
Parsley is a traditional garnish that is often left behind on the plate. This herb is high in Vitamin C and A, has cancer and inflammatory disease fighting qualities, and promotes heart health. Though the curly varieties add texture; you and your guests may find the milder flavor of the flat leafed variety more palatable. All this and it helps freshen your breath.
A sprig of mint looks good next to or on top of most desserts. Its cool flavor will help settle your stomach – very valuable during the holidays when we all tend to overindulge. It too is high in Vitamin C and A and helps fight cancer and inflammatory diseases. It also relieves breathing problems.
And the best part; both are easy to grow right in your kitchen window.
A bit more information: Grow these and other herbs in a warm sunny window. Plant them in containers with drainage holes filled with a quality well-drained potting mix. Water thoroughly whenever the soil begins to dry. Click here to watch my Windowsill Herb Garden video.
