Gourmet Gardens

I had not tried their products before but I was so impressed. I will be using them again and again. Fresh herb taste, in easy to use tubes, you can’t go wrong!!! They also have a huge variety to choose from. Herbs and spices that will last in your fridge so much longer than fresh!!! Herbs are a staple in our fridge at all times. I have already turned over my garlic for someone else to prep, it is a time saver for sure. From now on it will be Gourmet Garden doing the work for me. They are used on a 1:1 ratio for fresh herbs and a 2:1 for dried, 2 Tbsp. Gourmet Gardens to 1 Tbsp. dried. They are easy to find too in your grocery store, as they are close to the fresh herbs in the refrigerated section.
