Simple Herbal Gifts: a Little Cooking Wreath

Categories: Seasonings
Yield: 1 Wreath

Stiff chive flower stalks
-(regular or garlic chives)
Long sprigs of thyme
Long sprigs of parsley
Long sprigs of oregano
Long sprigs of marjoram
Long seed heads of basil
Short sprigs of sage
Short sprigs of rosemary
Dried chili peppers

Small herb wreaths like this one can go directly into the soup pot, or you
can hang one in the kitchen to be plucked from as needed. Present them in
plastic bags to hold their flavors and minimize their shattering.

Twist chive stalks into a 4- to 5-inch circle to form a base for the
wreath. Twist in sprigs of thyme, parsley, oregano, and marjoram and basil
seed heads to fill out the wreath. Add a single short sprig of rosemary or
sage. Let dry thoroughly; the wreath will shrink slightly. Thread three or
four dried chilis on sewing thread and tie around top of wreath. Cover
thread with a tie of kitchen twine or a narrow ribbon.
