Today I am sharing a little trick to harvest your herbs! I have a new herb garden this year right outside my kitchen door. Very convenient for me, to say the least.
I used to hand pick the herb leaves from their stems, which was slow work and often inefficient. Then I discovered that I could use my slotted spoon! Turned out to be the perfect tool for the task.
To remove the leaves from herbs like thyme and oregano, stick the stem in one of the holes and gently pull it through.
As the stem goes through the hole, the leaves come off easily. You now have fresh herbs to use in your meal and no stems!
Hint – do this right after you’ve picked your herbs when the stems are fresh.
