I personally love to use rosemary in beef stew, and marjoram does wonders for pork--especially if you cook it with spicy brown mustard too! I never use parsley, sage, rosemary AND thyme, but it makes a catchy tune doesn't it?

First thing I would do is vacuum seal it so it will stay fresh. Then get some spice jars, fill, and label as gifts to friends and family for the holidays. I would love to be Herbs de Provence as a gift.

Thanks a lot but I just quoted and replied to Robo at the beginning of this thread...
I use such herbs commonly as I am Italian and we are used to put these herbs in pots for cooking beef, chicken,pork.. I also add olive oil and onions,I let everything stir for a while and add white wine,then I let everything cook in a pot for at least 40 minutes.

Summer Savory with asparagus in a butter sauce or cream sauce.
Tarragon, is best thrown out, I can't find a thing I like with it.

Uh, no "Blissful", you don't "throw out" tarragon simply because you "can't find a thing" you like with it. Good grief!! What a statement. If you personally don't like Tarragon, fine. To make it sound like dirt, well, I think you need to expand your culinary horizons a bit more.

Tarragon is WONDERFUL!!! I stuff handfulls of it into chickens before roasting, top fish with it before broiling, stir it into sauces for lobster. . . .

Just because you don't like it "Blissful", doesn't make it something for the trash.

Well, Breezy, blissful was talking about her own tastes and her own trash. "IMO" is implied.

I totally agree with her about tarragon. And, along with tarragon, MY trash contains lavender, fennel, anise, and, most of all, cilantro.

IMO.

Whenever I make a marinara sause I use a small handfull of dry basil and about dry half of oregano for a medium size pot full. I like fresh cilantro in my latino meals, salsas. I make a beach bean salad that I use ground clove in it to give it a very nice freshness.
