I am really lucky to have about a dozen great, local shops that never fail to amaze me with their unique wares. One such shop is Lindowen’s American Country. Their assortments of herbs jumped out on my last visit as a “must have” item for the winter months ahead.
Both the loose lavender and the jars of herbs—packaged in classic Ball canning jars with zinc lids and handstamped labels—have an appealing modern simplicity. The assortment is just what a cook needs: bay leaves, lavender, rosemary, allspice and cloves.
