Review of Gourmet Garden Herbs and Spices

Right now, I'm looking at a slimy bag of cilantro that my husband just had to buy from the store.  The issue is that herbs look so good at the grocer's, but once we get them home -- they lose their flavor and freshness very quickly!  I could grow my own, but I use a dozen at any given time, and sometimes you need fresh herbs quicker than you can grow them!

I was able to sample all the varieties of Garden Gourmet's fresh squeezable herbs this past month, and they may be my new FAVORITE grocery item.  They can be safely stored in the freezer util they are ready to be opened, then keep then in the fridge as you use them over the next few weeks.  I have my favorite (the garlics, for example), but I am thrilled when I can just squirt a bit into whatever I'm cooking.  It turns out delicious -- like I used fresh herbs, but without the cutting and herb-scented fingers.

Just check out how easy it was to use this product in lieu of fresh garlic in my Red Beans and Rice with Sausage Recipe:

1. Skip the cutting board and remove the lid.
2. Squirt the equivalent of 2 cloves of garlic into the dish.
3. Cook as normal (and avoid having to wash the garlic off your hands!)

You can find all the varieties of Gourmet Garden (Cilantro, Garlic, Dill, Ginger, Basil, Chili Pepper, Lemon Grass, and more) in the fresh produce section of Walmart and other retailers.
