Corner View is a weekly appointment - each Wednesday - created by Jane of Spain Daily, where bloggers from all corners of the world share their view on a pre-arranged theme. If you'd like to join in, please leave a link to your Corner View post in the comments below, and be sure to visit other participants too.
Many thanks to Heather's mother for the theme today!
There are many changes that happen to taste when one grows a kitchen garden: we all have heard how fresh-picked, perfectly ripe vegetables have flavors and textures totally different from those of store-bought vegetables. And it is absolutely true: once you get used to the taste of garden-grown vegetables, you'll never like off-season ones, and will look suspiciously at those vegetables that come from afar, and must have been picked before they reached their ripe flavor and texture.
Fresh herbs are just the same: they taste nothing like the dried herbs you buy in a plastic bag or a jar. And when you have a garden, or even a tiny little sunny corner in a yard, growing fresh herbs is a must. A few leaves of almost any fresh herb can enhance the flavor of almost any dish, however simple. For instance, have you ever tasted fresh herbs - like savory, thyme, marjoram, sage and rosemary - finely chopped and mixed in with fresh goat cheese?
The theme next week is "what makes me happy", and comes from Kristin.
I'm away for a few days, and will be visiting your corners over the weekend.
Happy corner viewing to all!
