  • Sports drinks

  • The flavor and aroma of freshly cut herbs enhance any cooked meal

     Ever wonder who first thought of eating a tomato with fresh basil, or combining sage with onion in a stuffing, or lamb with rosemary and garlic? I know … who cares? But most of the flavor-enhancing herbs we enjoy today were prized by the earliest cultures to improve the flavor of often dull and limited meals.
