Bouquet Garni is the French term for a bundle of
herbs. In a classic Garni, as below, remember that the larger the garni, the
stronger the flavor so don't use too much and overpower a small sauce or not use enough
and lose its' effect on a large pot of soup.
Your Host, Brad
For an average size pot of soup or cooking a game hen:
1 small bay leaf or branch of fresh
3 sprigs of parsley
1 small sprig of thyme
Tie the herbs together or you can combine the herbs in
a piece of cheesecloth which is then gathered and tied. Drop into your soup, stock
or other culinary desire and remove after cooking.
