Recipe: Asian Aromatic Mixture

Spices and Aromatic Herbs Mixtures
October 20, 2011

Throughout the summer I harvested and dried many aromatic herbs for two aromatic mixtures, this asian one and a Mediterranean Aromatic Mixture.

Erbe aromaticheSome fresh ingredients harvested in August: Numex Suave Orange chilies (mild and aromatic), sprigs of horsemint, curry plant and some basil cinnamon leaves.


Erbe aromaticheI also used balm leaves, chives garlic (similar to chives), anise, lemongrass and some spices that I grown.

Ginger is the only ingredient that I bought.


This mixture is slightly spicy, with a strong aroma of curry and a hint of citrus due to ginger, lemongrass and lemon balm, along with the spicy touch of cinnamon basil and anise.

Wow, Graziana. Il tuo misto aromatico e molto interessante, sia per quello che riguarda la lista degli ingredienti che proprio l aspetto: mi sembra di poterlo annusare a distanza. E poi certo, la soddisfazione di usare cosi tanti prodotti del tuo giardino, lo rende ancora piu prezioso.

questo misto aromatico è nato come un esperimento ma devo dire che mi ha convinto completamente, lo sto usando ma soprattutto di tanto in tanto apro il barattolo solo per sentirne il profumo!
