    Food Poll #11: How do you Herb it up?

    If you were on a desert island, what herbs would you take with you?
    “You have never answered but you did not need to. If I stand at the ocean I can hear you with your thousand voices. Sometimes you shout, hilarious laughter that taunts all questions. Other nights you are silent as death, a mirror in which the stars show themselves. Then I think you want to tell me something, but you never do. Of course I know I have written letters to no-one. But what if I find a trident tomorrow?" ~~Letters to Poseidon, Cees Nooteboom

    “We still carry this primal relationship to the Earth within our consciousness, even if we have long forgotten it. It is a primal recognition of the wonder, beauty, and divine nature of the Earth. It is a felt reverence for all that exists. Once we bring this foundational quality into our consciousness, we will be able to respond to our present man-made crisis from a place of balance, in which our actions will be grounded in an attitude of respect for all of life. This is the nature of real sustainability.”
    ~~Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee

    "We are the offspring of history, and must establish our own paths in this most diverse and interesting of conceivable universes--one indifferent to our suffering, and therefore offering us maximal freedom to thrive, or to fail, in our own chosen way."
    ~~Stephen Jay Gould, Wonderful Life: The Burgess Shale and the Nature of History

    "Humans are not rational creatures. Now, logic and rationality are very helpful tools, but there’s also a place for embracing our subjectivity and thinking symbolically. Sometimes what our so-called higher thinking can’t or won’t see, our older, more primitive intuition will." John Beckett

    Re: Food Poll #11: How do you Herb it up?

    My preference is for hot (both types of pepper - black and new world), or bitter. I don't really like sweet foods, so the herbs & spices that go with sweet don't appeal (except vanilla, which I prefer to smell, rather than eat).

    Ginger is an exception - hot and often used in sweet food, but it is amazing in other application, especially anything involving soy sauce.
    Those who have suffered understand suffering and therefore extend their hand.

    I can't do everything, but I can do something.

    I put ginger, tumeric, red pepper, and garlic in my sickie-poo chicken noodle soup. It clears the sinuses out like nothing else, baring a huge spoonful of my grandma's horseradish (she does it like this).

    I try not to mix herbs like majoan and melissa. I don't know how they cooperate together. Of course I can try mix them in a tea and try myself the result but I don't want to take the risk of it becoming poisonous.

    - - - Updated - - -

    And both majoran and melissa in addition to mint are my perfect combo, for now.

    That was so hard. I'm loving rosemary tea at the minute. It's helping me to curb my addiction to milky tea of coffee while studying.. I can go through a cup of tea before I've even finished gathering everything together to start studying, I use a teapot and a thermos flask of hot water at my desk to make the tea last longer, but still go through 2 or 3 refills in the same session.

    Rosemary is good for the memory anyway, so switching to this was a no-brainer, and got me off the teeth-staining, caffeine and calorie laden tea (I know tea by itself isn't bad, but with milk and in the quantity I was drinking it, the caffeine and calories soon add up).

    Rosemary works really well with roast veggies too. I often throw the fresh herb in with my veg when roasting and it works a treat.

    Yet I had to go for sage. Not because it does anything particularly amazing to my food though. I just adore the smell of sage and don't want to live in a world without it.

    I want to like horseradish, but I just don't. It's weird and gross.

    When I'm sick, I make apple-ginger-carrot juice. And just drink lots of it. With so much ginger it hurts.

    Re: Food Poll #11: How do you Herb it up?

    Does wasabi count as horseradish? According to QI, it commonly IS horseradish, just coloured green, outside of Japan..

    I honestly can't place the taste of horseradish. I must have tried it, but I'm drawing a blank. Does it give you the same feeling of being punched in the nose, that eating wasabi gives you? If so, then I could quite happily live in a world without it. I don't like food that fights back.
