Herbs That Make Yummy Desserts

Sa'idah Jaffar | July 13, 2017

When using herbs with desserts, you have to be a little experimental and a little bit more daring. For example, basil goes well with blueberries and sorrel pairs really well with citrus based desserts. Start with one kind of herb first and work your way up. Once you get the hang of it, it could really open up a whole new door for you in the world of desserts!
