Long associated with Christmas tradition, rosemary almost lost its place in the holiday pantheon at the beginning of the last century. It has since rebounded in recent years. It fills the air in your home with a fragrant scent, adds flavour to holiday dishes and even comes disguised as a tree!
While we love them year round, nutmeg, cloves, juniper and, above all, cinnamon are traditionally associated with the holiday season. Hardly a December goes by without its spicy scent filling our homes. But did you know there are various types of cinnamon? And have you tried adding it to savoury dishes?
Do you remember the redhead from Gilligan’s Island or the Spice Girls? What is their connection to ginger, you ask? Both were named Ginger! Red-haired women have “ginger” hair and a fiery temperament. To be “gingery” suggests you are full of life. I particularly like this expression in the spring when our batteries are nearly empty. Ginger has no equal when it comes to spicing up our lives.
