Rose's Shop Watch-July '14: Herbs
The freshest bunches of herbs.
Can you imagine buying big fat bunches of fresh herbs, as if they had just been picked from the garden? Morrisons sell their herbs in bunches, and they are kept like fresh flowers in water with a gentle cool mist being sprayed over them to keep them from wilting. The choice is fantastic: dill, sage, flat leaf and curly parsley, thyme, coriander, mint, chives, basil, rosemary, tarragon, oregano, as well as fresh herb mixes to use as a bouquet garni, and even more surprisingly, samphire. Picking up a really generous bunch of oregano I could smell Italy.
This means you can use them as you should: by pulling off a handful at a time and chopping them. No more silly cellophane bags where you can’t tell if some of the herbs inside are past their best; no more buying parsley where all the stalks and leaves are jumbled up so it takes five minutes to reassemble them as a bunch.
It would be worth going to Morrisons for the herbs alone.
