A bouquet garni is a bunch of herbs used to flavour a soup, stew or casserole.
It will turn a plain dish into an excellent meal, help with digestion and provide valuable antioxidants to your meal.
A simple bouquet garni is made of parsley (including the stalks), thyme, and a bay leaf.
You can add any other culinary herbs that you'd like to use such as oregano or lovage.
It would be nice to make a selection of different bouquet garni to use for specific dishes.
To make a bouquet garni you can dry the herbs individually and then tie them into bunches/bags.
Or you may like to make your individual bunches with yout selected herbs and hang them to dry in a warm, dry, (not too sunny) spot.
