Make a bouquet garni

Everyone is getting herbs in the share this week and you can always pick your own thyme and sage in our herb garden near the CSA garage. A bouquet garni is a great way to put your herbs to use in casseroles, stocks, sauces and soups.  This is what BBC Food has to say about about a bouquet garni: It traditionally comprises parsley (or parsley stalks, which have lots of flavour), a few sprigs of thyme and a bay leaf. These herbs may be bundled into a strip of leek or a piece of celery stalk, or tied in a muslin bag or with string, to keep them together during cooking and allow easy removal before serving.

We like to use them when making homemade veggie stock!
