3 PICK A HERB BOU­QUET

Garden News (UK) - - About Now -

A great way to get the chil­dren in­volved in a bar­be­cue is to take them on a walk around the gar­den to find some herbs to help flavour the feast that’s to fol­low. Get them to rub the leaves and smell them as you find them. Un­der su­per­vi­sion, es­pe­cially for small chil­dren, let them have a go at snip­ping off the leaves with gar­den snips. Then take the har­vest back to the kitchen and ex­plain what each leaf is for, so they can chop some chives for a potato salad, use mint and basil leaves to dec­o­rate a salad, and use thyme and rose­mary to flavour meat.

Herbs are great to teach chil­dren about both gar­den­ing and cook­ing
