Hyssop at Dinner

Here's our dinner with hyssop flowers and leaves! The flowers have a more delicate taste so I decided to have them raw. They look real pretty too! The leaves flavour the cream sauce.

Compared to rosemary and thyme (my favourite herbs) the taste of hyssop is more subdued, and easily overpowered by garlic and other strong flavours. I think it'll go well with potatoes roasted in goose fat / olive oil.

Your dinner looks so delicious. Luckily my kids are not watching or else they will complain about what I'm feeding them !

OKC - They flower readily in a bigger pot. Give them a bit of bonemeal and rotate with seaweed extract and fish emulsion. Full sun.
