herb versus spice

What is an herb and what is a spice? The simple answer is that herbs are leafy; think parsley, sage, rosemary, thyme, basil. Spices are roots, barks and seeds, like cinnamon, clove, and ginger.

Loving the lovage

Lovage plant

Our lovage plant that’s under our fig tree comes back every year, and we just saw the plant sprouting for 2019 yesterday. It will grow to this nice size, and we can use it in Virgin Bloody Mary’s, in stews and in gazpacho.
