Hyssop Dried Leaves Organic order yours today and we pay the shipping

Hyssop Dried Leaves Organic

At Home Farm Herbery we know that both the flowers and leaves are edible and can use them like other fresh delicate herbs in salads, pastas, and summer soups. If yu grow Hyssop the flowers can be used for garnishes. We are offering our Organic Hyssop in dried form. A few ounces will last for months with no decrease in quality—just store your hyssop in a dark, airtight container.

Dried hyssop has one inconvenience: Its slender leaves, when dried, turn into brittle needles, unpleasant to eat. They do rehydrate, but with the texture of tea leaves. You can grind them in a spice grinder to a powder, but the easiest solution is infusion. A short bath in a tea ball or spice bag and their flavor will leach into whatever you're cooking. The infusion shouldn't be long, lest the herb's bitterness overwhelm its fragrance.

It puts a finishing touch in stocks and soups, along with some lemon juice. In robust braises, such as lamb shoulder, you can use it to replace some or all of the mint in a recipe

 Hyssop really shines in sweets. You can infuse it into custards for puddings or ice cream, pulverize it with sugar to make jam or candies, cook it with fruit for syrups or sauces

 1 oz. package for $5.98 plus we pay for the shipping and include a free herb or herb blend of our choice.  Buy today!

 We thank you for your purchase as all our net proceeds go to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
