A Little Cooking Wreath - craft

A Little Cooking Wreath - craft

Stiff chive flower stalks
-(regular or garlic chives)
Long sprigs of thyme
Long sprigs of parsley
Long sprigs of oregano
Long sprigs of marjoram
Long seed heads of basil
Short sprigs of sage
Short sprigs of rosemary
Dried chili peppers

Small herb wreaths like this one can go directly into
the soup pot, or you can hang one in the kitchen to be
plucked from as needed. Present them in plastic bags
to hold their flavors and minimize their shattering.

Twist chive stalks into a 4- to 5-inch circle to form
a base for the wreath. Twist in sprigs of thyme,
parsley, oregano, and marjoram and basil seed heads to
fill out the wreath. Add a single short sprig of
rosemary or sage. Let dry thoroughly; the wreath will
shrink slightly. Thread three or four dried chilis on
sewing thread and tie around top of wreath. Cover
thread with a tie of kitchen twine or a narrow ribbon. Author unknown
