I used to smoke it before it dried all the way out, but I quit that stuff a number of years ago.

i get cilantro and dill fresh every time i go to the store.   i get basil and rosemary fresh when I plan on using it.

otherwise, I use dry oregano, bay leaves, and thyme.

/ other herbs I would buy fresh for the thing I plan on making.
// i have tried to grown my own, but it always dies or tastes weird after a while.  my basil plant was unstoppable, and I regularly harvested it, but after a few months it tasted bitter.  after a year and trying all sorts of internet advice to get the flavor back, it died, and i said, good riddance, maud.  (i named it maud, i always give my plants monosyllabic names.  easier than saying "the basil plant".  however, i never use the plant's name in public, it is merely an internal reference, to save space in the old brainy-brain, who I call herb, but his real name is bob, with two "o"s)

sboyle1020: ALWAYS have fresh basil.


Fresh basil in the summertime is a glorious thing.

We also grow our own chives, but I live in Canada, so growing sh*t is hard.
