herb of the year 2012

the international herb association yearly publishes a book to celebrate one herb.  this year, the rose has been chosen for its’ antiquity and ability to soothe and heal.  i have been reading this book for a couple of weeks now and have been enjoying the articles written by more than 25 contributors.

one of my friends, Donna Frawley, is a regular contributor to the publications.  Donna, who owns frawley’s fine herbary in midland speaks on a variety of herb topics.  i have attended several of her cooking classes which are delightful, informative, and very tasty.

in this book, Donna has a recipe for rose butter cookies with a rose glaze.  she uses rose water in the recipe, and i am looking forward to making these cookies for valentines’ day. 

watch for their appearance on the blog.. coming soon !
