Description

American Herb Collection 

Sage, Spearmint and Chives are common herbs you will find in many seasonal and regional American dishes.

You may think of Sage as only being used in Thanksgiving recipes, but Berggarten Sage is so much more than stuffing recipes. While it pairs tastefully with so many pumpkin dishes, add sage to baked or sauteed fish and pork meals. Sage is, also, commonly used to create savory flavor in traditionally sweets such as scones and breads. Looking to expand your sage influence? Once your American Herb Collection arrives, try your hand at any of these yummy sage dishes.

Spearmint mint adds a certain level of sweetness to a dish. You're likely familiar with mint julep (the signature drink of the Kentucky Derby), but add chopped spearmint to salads, chichen dishes, even lamb. If you haven't tasted pea and mint soup, you're missing a true tastebud delight. Find recipes to get comfortable with adding spearmint to foods including pea and mint soup here for mint recipes. Oh...be sure to plant your mint in a container and not direct in the ground. Most mints are invasive and need to be contained in growing in pots only.

Culinary Chives are more than a green topping for baked potatoes (butter and sour cream, of course). They can add last minute light onion flavor to dishes or are the perfect garnish. You'll delight in having a chives plant to clip from right in your own kitchen. Bon Appetit offers many ways to use your chives - many you may not have thought of.
