Herbs are plants with savoury or aromatic properties that are used for flavouring and garnishing food, medicinal purposes and for fragrances. The difference between herbs and spices is what part of the plant they come from. The green leafy parts of plants used for seasoning and flavouring food are considered herbs. The word “herb” comes from the Latin word ‘herba’ meaning grass, green stalks or blades. Herbs and spices are a great way to enhance your food to make all that more tasty!
