This post is not much about Gardening, but more about Food, but may be of your interest since you can grow your own herbs to cook on Thanksgiving (maybe for next year?) besides that are easy to grow, don’t occupy too much space and you can regrow them!
“Memories are deeply tied to scents and this holiday has distinct aromas that often come from combinations of certain Thanksgiving herbs. So, get to know ‘em! Learn where these herbs come from and get tips on how to use more of them in your own cooking.”

Here are some recipes to help you take the next step in your herby Thanksgiving holiday:
- Oregano pairs well with tomato-based dishes but is also delicious in this turkey-rub with lemon and garlic or in this quick and easy roasted squash, red onion, oregano and mint side dish.
- Sage is also popular ingredient in many stuffing recipes, like this sage and onion stuffing from the Kitchn.
- Rosemary: Season potatoes with olive oil, salt, pepper and chopped rosemary for a simple side or stuff whole sprigs into your Thanksgiving turkey. You can also try this Rosemary-garlic butter rub.
- Parsley: A common ingredient in classic Thanksgiving day dressings.
- Marjoram balances garlic and lemon in this carrot side dish.
- Thyme pairs well with anything from poultry and meat to vegetables and soups. Knock out three of the Simon and Garfunkel herbs with this parsley, sage and thyme stuffing. A new side idea? Try these green beans with almonds and thyme.
