Here are some tips for growing and using herbs :

  1. Growing Herbs: Herbs such as basil, parsley, chives and thyme can be easily grown from seeds or seedlings. Make sure they get enough sunlight and water and that they are fertilized regularly to promote growth. It's best to start planting 3-4 weeks before the desired harvest.
  2. Harvesting herbs: If your herbs are large enough, you can harvest them by cutting off the leaves and stems. The best time to do this is in the morning, when the dew has dried up and the plants are at their freshest.
  3. Use herbs : Herbs can be used in many ways to add flavor and aroma to dishes. You can add it to salads, soups, sauces, dips, dressings and much more.

Pssst! Our insider tip:

For the perfect, flavored pesto, we recommend you consider the following:

  • Fresh Herbs : It's best to only use fresh herbs for the best aroma and flavor
  • Roast the pine nuts: Roast the pine nuts in a pan to intensify the flavor. Be careful not to burn the pine nuts, otherwise they may taste bitter.
  • Use high-quality olive oil: The olive oil should be of good quality to intensify the flavor.
  • Don't mix the pesto for too long : just mix the ingredients until they have an even, creamy consistency. If you mix it for too long, the pesto can become bitter.
  • Seasoning: Taste the pesto and add salt and pepper to make sure it is perfectly seasoned.
