Add flare to your favorite food with herbs

Just a pinch of herbs like parsley, thyme, rosemary and tarragon can make any dish delicious. Chef La La shares how to get that fresh herb flavor.

Herbs can come fresh, dried or frozen. Dry herbs are a safe way to save money, however they don't retain the flavor of fresh herbs. The ratio is about 3 to 1 when it comes to using dry versus fresh herbs.

Knowing how to store your herbs is very important. Keep them free of moisture, especially in the refrigerator. Place a paper towel underneath your refrigerated fresh herbs when placing in plastic baggy.

Aside from being delicious, herbs also have healing properties. Get to know your herbs to add health and happiness to you next dish!
