I have seen an advert for herbs in a tube. I think that means they are herb puree or something like that? I rarely buy fresh herbs (even though I know I should keep saying in going to grow them instead). Just wondering if anyone has used them before?
Same here with the garlic. I never use bulbs these days. No smell on your fingers, no messy cleaning out of garlic press, and always lovely juicy garlic, not dusty old bulbs. I'd use the herb tubes too if they are as good.
I tried the tubes and liked them, but then I read the ingredients and there was a lot of crap I wasn't expecting. Obviously might not be the case for all brands.
I use the Waitrose frozen herbs and never buy fresh except the ones they don't do (like dill). They are a bit pricy, but when I bought fresh I was always throwing away wilted leftovers, and the fresh ones aren't cheap anyway.
I used to use garlic from a jar but have gone back to fresh. Haven't tried frozen -- maybe I should. Fresh is way better than jar when it comes to garlic IMO.
yes, I use the coriander in a tube. It's quite good for squeezing into curries etc but it does contain oil and other stuff, so it wouldn't be much good in salad or as a garnish. I prefer the frozen herbs really.
Thanks! I will have a closer look at the ingreidents. I use fresh garlic, but always end up wasting a lot of the other herbs if I buy fresh so I think the tubes would be good for me. Would be basil/corriander to be used in curries, sauces and soups rather than salad.
