Herbs for Grilling

Make it fun and convenient to add some homegrown flavor to your cookouts.  Grow a few herbs in a pot or garden right next to the grill. 

Include some rosemary.  Better yet try the variety Barbeque.  The foliage is known for its especially good flavor and aroma suited to cooking.  Plus, the strong stems on these plants make the perfect skewer, something your guests are sure to remember.

The fine texture of dill combines nicely with colorful flowers and the flavor combines nicely with fish.  Grow in a container and harvest regularly to keep the plant looking its best.  And watch for seedlings in next year’s garden.

Add a bit of lemon flavor to chicken or fish with lemon verbena.  It’s suited to containers and grows to 6 feet tall in zones 9 and 10.  Harvest a few sprigs, gently crush to release the flavor and place on chicken or fish.

A bit more information:  Use herbs when grilling your favorite vegetables.  Basil, marjoram, oregano and thyme are a few that add a bit of extra flavor to your favorite grilled veggies.  And don’t forget the chives.  The leaves and flowers are edible and great on potatoes and much more.
