Would people also be able to post in this forum, helpful info and tips about growing and using cannibis sativa?

Sorry, back to the regularly scheduled thread.

what about something about it`s History and origins as well as medical usage(s), most all herbs and spices have quite a rich history and medicinal properties.

KE, do we want to encourage double posting of recipes? The search function will find tarragon chicken regardless of where it's posted.

YT, That could be as easy as a link. Otherwise, someone eould have to write that history into a post.

Growing Herbs and Spices
Tips, questions, all discussion on growing herbs and spices

Uses for Herbs and Spices
Tips, questions, all discussions on uses for herbs and spices
How about:

Herbs, Spices & Seasonings

Herb Infusions
Oils, Vinegars, etc. Methods & Recipes

_____________

Going off the Herb topic for a moment... Could there be an additional Dessert sub topic lumped into the catagory? i.e.

Souffle/Mousse/Flan/Pudding/Custard

TIA

I agree. That would be a very interesting series of posts.

Frankly, I think Kitchenelf's original proposition ("Growing" & "Uses") was just fine as is. The rest just spoils the broth & makes it more confusing.

Geez - all of THREE people even thought an Herbs & Spices forum was worthwhile when it was first suggested; now everyone suddenly wants to chime in & make it more complicated.

I'd vote for keeping it simple like Kitchenelf first suggested, then down the road if it looks like it needs more subforums, they can be added at that time.

The first three to promote such a forum have as much input as every other member. Each member's input is valued. More complicated might make it better, not worse or confusing.

This thread is here to gather input from every interested person.

Of course everyone's input is valued, but when you first start a forum with a gazillion little subforums, it never seems to work out. You get a few posts - many repetitive - here & there, & then the entire forum is deemed worthless & gets canned.

I'm just saying that it's best to start small & see how it goes.

I like this idea! It would be very handy to have a sticky that lists common (and not so common) mixtures and pairings of spices. A TNT bible of sorts that makes suggestions based on a starting ingredient. So, if you find yourself with some fresh sage and wonder what else you can throw in, the sticky would come to the rescue.

While it sounds great, it also sounds like a lot of work!
