I'm beginning to use home grown herbs in my cooking. I make a delicious salad dressing using majoram. Simply stir minced majoram and garlic with cider vinegar, mustard and olive oil. Flavour with pinch of salt and ground black pepper. It works with any salad really.
When I'm making pasta sauce, I often throw in a handful of sage, tarragon and majoram to give it an added kick.
Picking leaves from the herbs helps encourage growth too.
