Need Input on New Herb and Spice Forum
 
OK guys! We agree there should be a forum devoted to Herbs and Spices, which is basically what it will be called. What do you want to see this forum cover? Give us your input on how you would like to see this forum divided out. Some basic thoughts are for sub forums:

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

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

But, this is for you guys. What do you envision when you open this new forum? What sub forums would you like to see? Let's brainstorm here. You don't have to worry about being so accurate here - just throw out some ideas you have and let's get this started. We'll leave this open for discussion for about a week and then make a final decision.

Sounds good, Vicky. Aside from growing and using herbs, what else is there? Well there's always drying, freezing and being able to buy hard-to-find ones. Just my thoughts.

How about Growing and Processing Herbs and Spices. To cover things like drying, grinding, etc.

As for Uses, do you see recipes for things like pesto or dill sauce here?

Dina 09-09-2007 07:22 PM

I agree with Katie and Andy on this. It be good to have a thread on preserving and processing herbs and spices.

Maybe - Growing and Preserving Herbs and Spices?

As far as the pesto and dill sauce question - that's what we're trying to figure out. I see where this is exactly where someone might post a question and the answer could be - Make pesto - or make a dill sauce....and then they would post a recipe.

I like this idea,and recipes for the sauce or where a certain sauce might work is a good idea.example being pesto and where it can be used..The specific recipe such as with pasta or bruschetta I feel might better be placed in say the pasta forum or appitizers rather than in the herb section..If that were to happen, specific recipes then the other forum would lose some members and people would be confused where to plce certain questions, The herb forum would over flow with recipes that belong else where..
So growing, preserving, herb sauces would be great...say a section for hot sauces and one for fresh and cold but sauces only..Not a full recipe other than suggestions for their use.

What spices or herbs go with what would fall under Uses for Herbs and Spices, wouldn't it?

Blends - we did discuss a sub forum titled this also - this is exactly the type of input we need from you guys!

Thanks for all the suggestions so far!!

Miss Elf...

A rhetorical question. If I wanted to post a recipe called Chicken Tarragon, would I post it under Chicken, or might it go under "Uses for Herbs & Spices" as the Tarragon sauce is key in the dish?

kitchenelf 09-09-2007 09:25 PM

Rhetorically I would say it still goes under Chicken :chef:

This is where it gets tricky and why we have discussed that MOST instances fall under another forum already listed and have hesitated to add it.
