Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Wondering what to do with the turmeric in the back of the cupboard? Make Turmeric Honey, a natural remedy for allergy symptoms. From allspice to vanilla, this volume provides a valuable resource for utilizing herbs in food or as natural remedies. McBride (herbal medicine & women's health, Univ. of California-Davis; 105 Ways To Celebrate Menstruation) explains the properties and uses of 50 herbs commonly found in home kitchens. Recipes employ herbs in various beverages (waters, smoothies, cordials), vinegars, oils, baths, and more. Color photographs would enhance the material, but the text is well organized and clearly written. The source list for buying dried herbs, seeds, and other materials used in the recipes is important, as not all markets may have these ingredients readily available. VERDICT McBride's articulation of the health benefits of herbs is accessible, and the variety of recipes provides readers with many approaches to maximizing these benefits.—Meagan Storey, Virginia Beach

    What I love about The Herbal Kitchen, you get the knowledge of each herb what part you use so as not to confuse you. There are many times that a recipes calls for a particular herb and you have no idea what it is the leaf or the bark this can be hard for a beginner. Also you have the common name as well as the scientific one. My dad taught me the scientific names so sometimes I have to think about the common ones my husband thinks that is funny most people are the opposite. I love how you get the knowledge and then it gets good because a lot of beginner books give you the knowledge but not the recipes to put them into, this one does.

    You have recipes for
    ¿Infused Honey
    ¿Vinegar
    ¿Oils
    ¿Bath and Foot Soaks
    ¿Spices (how to create blends)

    and so many more.
