but mainly the bulb.
I'm also not a huge fan of mint. It has its place, but not in much.
doesn't taste of much, if you leave it off a dish it doesn't really matter and it's so shit butchers waste loads of it by bunging it in their displays.
Shut up, fool.
you curly or flat leaf boglin.
just ruined my cocopops
You should know that.
I nominate lemon thyme.
It's lemon time!
Fuck off mate.
It's the worst herb, not a terrible herb.

akin to the anti-mushroom ponce.
possibly my favourite of all the herbs (will confirm later)
and of course the absolutely delightful lemon thyme.
they're the big guns, the real players.
Obviously there's other good ones but those are the dons of the poncey herb food world.
Makes shit noodles into great noodles. When you're chopping coriander up, it's impossible not to feel a bit cheffy.
BUT apparently there's some gene some people have that makes coriander actually taste violently awful, hence the ponces
Even the name is the herb equivalent of a neville or a derek
A bullet dodged by the sounds of it
Unless you like sprinkling earth on your food - best avoided.
Dill is instrumental in the mighty Gravadlax (the hero's starter of choice) so that's an instant WRONG there.
unless they're american 'erbs'
some people have serious issues with anything even vaguely aniseed or coriander, I don't get that at all.
the only spice I have issues with is asafoetida, it fucking stinks. When it is cooked out it is nice, but I just binned it as my whole cupboard was starting to smell of ass so felt it wasn't really worth it.
what wither chervil or tarragon are for, so either of those will be fine. thanks mate
chop up some in your scrambled eggs, you will thank me.
Sage is best.
or some other kind of shithouse herb you can't get anywhere. there has to be a reason
its leaves and seeds are really strong flavoured (useful for vegetarians) (In the absence of lovage you could use celery leaves for an approximation of the flavouring.
Sorrel isn't really used as a herb, more as a vegetable, plus there are two types of sorrel the coarser dock type sorrels and the super delicate and beautiful oxalidea 'wood sorrel'.....whatever they both have that sharp acidity that is nice in their soups, dont have to too much too regular though, as the oxalic acid will be too much for your kidneys to be happy with
Attention seeking twat
Look at me
You can take it all because this face is free
Maybe next time use your eyes and look at me
I'm a drama queen if that's your thing baby
I can even do reality
But the leaves can do one
anyone who uses lavender in cooking can go spin
everytime sage is in something it turns whatever that food is into one of those oh look at me i'm herby aren't i flavorful kind of foods
tryhard and annoying, that's what sage is
also known as black onion seeds?
they come from 'love in the mist' type plants (you might have these in your garden) Amaranths
She's all over the place.
I love pickled herring but it comes with dill far too often.
to shove loads of coriander in a salad (I'm looking at you M&S!!) so you're just getting mouthfuls of coriander. Not a fan.
when there was an app called 'the banana is the largest herb' and all it did was put an image on your profile box saying 'the banana is the biggest herb'?
because i had a fish tank and fish poo smells like coriander tastes
My early cooking upbringing was heavily influenced by Delia.
However it does have a slight cat-piss element to its scent.
Though my local cat is very keen.
but of them all parsley is the most pointless.
to make parsley honey (careful though, dont have too much, it is poisonous in high quantities)
And to be honest, for every herb you just gotta know it's right place.
Dill is great on top of potatoes, particularly boiled or lightly sauted. Also on fish.
But dill by itself is really not much fun.
Couldn't get thyme the other day so tried this instead. Pretty much overpowers & ruins any dish you put it in. The dry stuff is OK sprinkled onto a pizza but the fresh stuff is a real bastard. You have to be careful with sage as well, much as I like it.
Thyme shits on the rest of them in my opinion.
