Harvesting And Preserving Herbs

Angèle Kamp
Many of the fresh, flavorful herbs used to make dishes better can be also preserved so they can be used outside of the growing season.

It’s horticulture day on Talk of Iowa. Host Charity Nebbe starts the show in the herb garden with horticulturist Cindy Haynes. If you’re lucky, you may be up to your elbows in fresh herbs from your garden. Haynes gives listeners some pointers on how to preserve those fresh flavors to enjoy after the growing season.

Richard Jauron also joins the program to answer questions about gardens and trees.


· Cindy Haynes, associate professor of horticulture, Iowa State University

· Richard Jauron, Iowa State University Extension Horticulture Specialist
