The Essential Herbal ~ Sept/Oct 2009

Another stunningly stuffed issue is winging its way to the homes of subscribers. It is so much fun coming up with the cover now that we're using color! In fact, it's hard to decide which picture to use. Anyhow, we've got a great harvest issue.

Inside you will find:
Field Notes - how this summer went in the garden.
Historic Herbal: A 17th Century Rose Cream, Kathleen Setzer
Herbalist's Tour of the Fair Share Urban Garden in Central Florida, Cory Trusty
Herbs & Breads, What a Perfect Combination, from The Herb Basket News
Parsley, Cindy Jones
The Global Herbal - Europe, Marita Orr
Marvelous Mushrooms, Betsy May
Autumn Harvest Word Find
Air Drying Herbs, Janet Teas
Halloween, Mary Ellen Wilcox
Local Naturalist Lisa Sanchez, Molly Sams
Seasonal Adjustments, Maryanne Schwartz
Tea, What's it all about, Tina Sams
Review of Gail Faith Edwards' new book, Michael J. Caduto
Basic Puff Pancake, Sarah Liberta
Ruby's Hot Lips Chocolate Cupcakes, Susan Wittig Albert
How to Make Flower Essences, Tina Sams

Looking through the magazine, I find that almost all of the articles include some recipes, ideas and instruction for the use of the herbs being discussed. 4 herb and bread recipes, tabouli, mushroom tincture, chaga chai, mushroom soup, apple crisp, pumpkin ring cake, sauerkraut and pork chops, Brethren cheese bread, 5 tea blends, and lots more. There's enough to keep an herbie busy through the fall.
