Little Cooking Wreaths

(This is a nice little idea & great if you love making stews & soups during the winter. I know I love making homemade soups and stews.)

Little Cooking Wreaths

Little Cooking Wreaths - can go right into soup pot, or hang in the
kitchen to be plucked from and used

Twist chive stalks into a 4-5" circle, forming a wreath base. Twist
in sprigs of thyme, parsley, oregano, marjoram and basil seed heads,
to fill out wreath. Add a short sprig of rosemary or sage. Let dry
thoroughly --wreath will shrink slightly. Thread 3 or 4 dried chiles
on sewing thread and tie around wreath top. If wreath is to hang,
cover thread by embellishing with a bow of kitchen twine or narrow
ribbon. Present your gift in a bow-tied plastic bag to preserve
flavor and minimize shattering.
