Have you ever wanted to make a recipe and read through the spices and been frustrated that you didn't have the fresh parsley or the cilantro? Better yet, have you gone and bought fresh parsley for a recipe and then watch the parsley turn into a mass of green slime because you haven't had another recipe requiring fresh parsley or cilantro?
I found I just left out these ingredients in a recipe because I didn't have it on hand. There is a reason these recipes have them as an ingredient as it does make the final outcome of the food taste better.
Perhaps many of you already knew this little secret but I have just discovered...
Gourmet Garden which I am using for specific herbs. They have a whole line of organic herbs but I opt to only use the ones that I tend to skip on the recipe due to the waste I have by not using all the herb....like cilantro and parsley. This is a wonderful source to keep in your fridge to have organic herbs on hand in your fridge. Especially nice during the winter when fresh produce is not readily available.
