Delicious recipe ideas with fresh herbs

YUMMY! Poached pears with thyme and Greek yoghurt

Klara & Ida tested the herbs from the CUBE Color 14 and created a delicious dessert with the herbs.

Recipe for 5-6 people:
4-6 pears (best a solid variety, e.g. Abate Fetel)
2 cups apple juice
2 tbsp honey
1 pinch salt
5 stems thyme, cut into pieces
2 cups Greek yoghurt

Instructions:
Completely peel the pears and put them in the pot. Add the apple juice, honey, and bring to a boil. Season with a pinch of salt. Add the chopped thyme and simmer for about 20 minutes until the pears are soft but do not fall apart. Pour the yogurt on to dessert plates. Decoratively place the pear on top of the yogurt and drizzle with the apple juice, honey and thyme sauce.

Dry or freeze herbs?

Dry highly aromatic herbs such as oregano, rosemary, peppermint or sage. The best method is to take the freshly picked herbs and place them on packing paper or crepe paper and let them dry in a warm place. Or hang herbs such as lavender from the ceiling like small bouquets. By the way, it can take up to 10 days until the herbs are bone dry - do not store them until then!

Some herbs are better suited for freezing because they lose their flavour when dried. This is true for all herbs that have a light, fleeting character or pungent flavours such as basil, parsley, chives or dill. Simply chop freshly picked herbs and store them in a resealable freezer bag in your freezer.
