Storing Seasonings: Fresh Herbs

I have grown herbs in my own garden for several years, with varied levels of success.    The only problem is  I have gotten used to using fresh but I am not happy to pay the exorbitant price for fresh in the winter.   So this winter I decided to grow a few herbs in my kitchen window.  I checked out my options and decided I had room for three herbs.  I decided on basil, parsley, and rosemary.  I purchased inexpensive pots and seeds and have been growing them since January.

It has been much easier then I thought.  The herbs have done very well and I have enjoyed growing them.  If you live in a cold norther area like I do you might want to think about having a pot of herbs somewhere in your kitchen. It is a great was to add something tasty to your food storage.
