Christmas herbs and spices


Rosemary-legend has it that this herb bloomed and bore fruit out of season when Jesus was born.  It would add a great flavour to my Festive Nut Roast (substitute for sage) or in my Mushroom and Chestnut Pie for Christmas Eve supper.

Rosemary has many health benefits such as helping with digestion, which is great at this time of year. It is bursting with antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds and protects the brain from aging.

Sage-legend has it that Mary and baby Jesus hid from Herod in a sage bush.  It is a great addition to my festive nut roast.

This herb is also great for digestive problems and if you get a sore throat from all that carol singing, you could try a sage tea which is antiviral, antiseptic and astringent. Add boiling water to 10 sage leaves, add 2 tsp lemon juice and sweeten with stevia to taste.

Ginger-ginger has been associated with Christmas since at least Elizabethan times when Elizabeth would present courtiers with gingerbread likenesses of themselves at Christmas.  This spice is great sprinkled on melon as a starter.  In the run up to Christmas, I used ginger to make some ginger cookie Christmas tree decorations.

Ginger is great for nausea, inflammation and it relieves congestion.

Cinnamon-traditionally used in mulled wine this spice has the fragrance we most associate with Christmas. It is often used to make decorations. This spice has many benefits. It balances blood sugar reducing cravings, it is anti-bacterial and it reduces inflammation. Try sprinkling a little on your porridge or smoothies. I used cinnamon in my 'Breakfasts to go' Banana Porridge Blend, a great start to the day.
