A New Book for the collection
It's always fun when your mailbox offers a package. This week we received our copy of By The Hearth. It is a compilation of the first five years of the fall /winter articles from The Essential Herbal magazine. Written by contributors to the magazine this books features a pleasant assortment of all things herbal. The chapters include: In the kitchen, Herbal First Aide (including pets), gifts and crafts from The Stillroom, Traditions and close up view of Single Herbs. The Rosemary House is represented in the book with articles on Cranberry, Kelp, Saffron and our family Christmas featuring our recipe for Byron's Potato Filling. With over 230 pages of solid information it is a joy to see that the book is very well indexed so that you can search by writer, topic, herbs, or recipe. Congrats to editor Tina Sams for this fine book. It is going to give me many fine evenings of inspiration!
