Winner of Herb Competition




Sorry I have wrongly numbered number 15 as 16! Well spotted Elaine! There are only 15 pictures.
First the answers:
1. rosemary
2. sage
3. basil
4. coriander
5 chive (not garlic chives our garlic chives have a white flower))
6. sage
7. bay
8. angelica (seed head)
9 fennel
10. parsley
11. angelica (leaves)
12. mint
13. thyme
14. parsley (flat leaf)
15. oregano (would accept marjoram)

No-one managed to identify all 15 herbs correctly so the prize goes to the person who managed to identify the most. That person is Jules (Suburban Veg Plot. Jules also was one of the names in the hat for the last competition so it's second time lucky for her. Please email me the address to which you want the prize sending, Jules.

The next competition will be posted later this week and the prize will be A Pictorial Field Guide - Fruit Seeds. Each of the books has the same format with only the section on specific seeds being different.

  1. I'm not familiar with Angelica at all - what do you use it for Sue?

    1. I have to admit to never actually using any, Liz. We were given the plant. You can candy the young stemds by boiling the stems in sugar syrup. The stems can be cooked with rhubarb or apple for pies or crumbles. They’re also used in jams and preserves, and the leaves are supposed to go well with fish or in salads. Anyone else used it?

    1. Well spotted Elaine - I've added a bit to the post explaining that I got the numbering wrong. As it's a screen grab that is easier than regrabbing!

    1. Maybe you remember the little sugared green diamond shapes that are used to decorate the top of buns (cup cakes), Tanya. That's angelica.
