10 Things I Learned About Herbs in 2010

| 12/30/2010 9:56:24 AM

GinaEvery year—every day, in fact—we learn something new. During my time working for The Herb Companion I have learned a lot. Here are 10 of the most interesting things I learned about herbs in 2010.

1. This year I discovered my new favorite herb—the ornamental Echinacea purpurea 'Pink Double Delight'. I can't get over its pink, poofy flowers. (Cutting-Edge Echinaceas, May 2010.)

2. There is no such thing as chocolate basil. After a whole year of searching, The Herb Companion has decided that this mysterious herb is merely a myth. If you have information you would like to contribute to the mystery, please email (Chocolate Basil: The Herb-an Myth, March 2010.)

3. Chew on a few dill seeds to allay bad breath and help digestion. (Dill, March 2010.)

4. It takes 50,000 to 75,000 blossoms and 70,000 to 200,000 dried threads to create only one pound of saffron. That's a lot of saffron flowers—No wonder it's so expensive! (The Secrets of Saffron, January 2011.)
