Windowsill: Sage (this needs to go outside it's a bit sick!) coriander (again I think sick in the heat,hoping it perks up soon) standard sweet basil, purple basil.
Outside Herb patch: Chives, Rosemary, Mint, Oregano, Thyme, italian parsley. We also have curly parsley in a pot.
On my wishlist: Thai Basil, I'd like to get a Bay Tree and a Kaffir Lime tree also.
A recipe using a combination of my herbs today:
Rich Beef Casserole - in the slow cooker/crockpot
Ingredients - layer in the following order
1kg cubed blade steak
2 med onions, diced
1x 420g can of peeled tomatoes or 2 sliced tomatoes
chopped basil (I used about 15 leaves)
chopped parsley (I used about 3 stalks italian flat leaf)
2 tb beef gravy powder
1/2 cup red wine
1/2 cup water
2 tb worcestershire sauce
1/3 cup tomato sauce
salt and pepper to season
I have put this on at 10.30am on Auto. About 3pm I'll chop about 8 medium button mushrooms and turn it down to 1 for 1.5 hours and then turn it off.
Serve with rice or mashed potato or mashed potato/pumpkin/kumera or sweet potato mix mash.
