The Pickup Process
Your order will be handpicked and prepared just before pickup. Each type of herb will be secured with a piece of jute. Then your entire herb order will be loosely bundled, tied with jute, and receive a cardstock tag with your name on it. Each person’s bundle will be stored in a jar of water, in a red cooler.
When you arrive to pick up your herbs, just look for your name tag and take your bundle. Please do not take the glass jar. Your herbs will be fine for at least 30 minutes without water, but after that time, they should be stored in a vase, glass or jar with water. They will keep for several days, or longer, if stored in water.
What to Do With Fresh Herbs
Many people who purchase fresh herbs will use them for specific recipes or other cooking applications. In most cases, fresh herbs are added towards the end of the cooking process or sprinkled over the finished dish. Herbs can be steeped in warm (not HOT) water to make herbal teas or marinated in vinegar to flavor it. Here’s a few more ideas for using your herbs.
Fresh chive flowers will keep for a day or so if stored in water. Use quickly for best flavor.
While herbs are generally safe to consume, there are always exceptions or contraindications. You should always seek medical advice before using herbs medicinally. We are not medical professionals, any information on herbs we offer is just that, information.
