GARLIC CHIVES (60g)

$25.00

We don’t grow garlic here at Evergreens, but we do grow the next best thing: Garlic Chives! They’re perfect for egg dishes and quintessential in home-cooked dumplings and pot-stickers. They also toe the herb/vegetable line carefully and are very useful as seasoning, garnish or part of a marinade. Please note that garlic chives are not the same as chives which lend more of an onion-y taste.

Ahhhhhh that refreshing taste. Although not often used in cooking, almost all of us get familiar with this mint leaf on a daily basis in the form of chewing gum or toothpaste. Peppermint goes well shredded in grain or bean salads and you’ll find it comes in handy when you’re trying to cook up some mint-flavoured sweet treats. Take note if you’re somebody who constantly has an upset stomach, as a quick batch of peppermint tea should make you feel better in a jiffy!

There is truly nothing as refreshing as fresh cut leaves of a mint plant. Milder and sweeter than peppermint, spearmint is our go-to-choice for making sauces and jellies which best complement savoury dishes such as grilled and roasted meats. High in antioxidants, spearmint makes a great tea that can be used to alleviate symptoms of a wide variety of ailments.

ROSEMARY (15g)

$25.00

As much an Evergreens herb as an evergreen herb, expect our rosemary to be available all year round (in small quantities). Whilst the fragrant needle-like leaves are particularly suited for complementing stuffings and roast dishes, waste not and save the stems as kebab skewers. Barbecues aside, well-steeped rosemary tea is said to aid digestion, cognitive function and confer antioxidative benefits. Too pretty to eat? Well then …

CILANTRO / CORIANDER (25g)

$25.00

Known by some as Chinese parsley, cilantro is the leaves and stalks of the herbaceous plant which produces coriander seeds. Its distinctive, piquant flavour with citrus overtones is sought after equally in Latin America for livening up burritos, salsas and guacamoles, as well as in Asia for soups and as a garnish. If cooking, add towards the very end. For adding a splash of something different to your dishes, why not prepare your own cilantro butter?
