This is one of the great joys of my day: snipping herbs from my whiskey-barrel garden and arranging them into glass jars to line my windowsill, just so. They're all growing wild out there right now...especially the tarragon, which has grown into such a tangle that it's hard to separate the stalks. Do you ever freeze herbs? I have never done that, but I've been reading about making them into a paste with a little bit of olive oil and freezing them into sealed jars. For soups and roasts and pastas and things in the winter. One of my future goals, for when I'm older and have white hair and nine or ten cats, is to become an herbalist and make oils and potions for all sorts of ailments. That's after the period of my life when I raise a herd of goats and make cheese. How am I going to fit all of this in?
We've been eating these herb-baked eggs for lunch lately and I could probably eat them every day for the rest of my life.
