Culinary herbs are basically plants that are edible. The aromatic properties of the herb can be used to add flavour and depth to food and drinks. Sometimes people confuse culinary herbs with spices. Spices are usually powdered substances produced from the grinding of seeds, roots, bark, fruit and sometimes the flowers or flower parts e.g. cardamom (seeds), cinnamon (bark), and saffron (the stamens of the flowers). Herbs are usually the leaves and may be used fresh or dried.

This eBook goes into detail in how you can use, store and process culinary herbs. In addition to using culinary herbs for cooking, this eBook has lots of ideas of things you can create with herbs.
