Herbs are any green or leafy part of a plant, with fragrant or aromatic properties, used for seasoning and flavoring food. Herbs can be used dried or fresh. Some common fresh herbs include cilantro, mint, and parsley, and dried herbs include rosemary, sage, oregano, and thyme. Dried herbs are added during the cooking whereas fresh herbs are added once cooking has been completed. They can even be used as a part of natural medicines.
When buying fresh herbs, go for bright or deep green, depending on the variety, and perky looking. Also, make sure leaves are not wilted or yellowing. When buying dried herbs, make sure thy are properly sealed as open herbs may lose their flavor and aroma. Also, they should be completely dried with no evidence of moisture.
