The Original Trio
We developed and packaged our herbs with simplicity in mind. Our herbs sit right in your eye line—lush, fragrant and ready for use. We know that out of sight often means out of mind when it comes to the fresh elements you’ve gathered. Our living herbs come in a water-ready container that serves as their home, no need to re-pot them or tuck them into a crowded fridge. They’re easy keepers.
We chose your most used and most loved herbs—basil, mint & thyme—so there’ll be no shortage of brilliant ideas for your living herbs. Craft a rich sauce, aromatic cocktail or relaxing bath soak. Use them right up and replenish your Counter Culture container.
Caring for your living herbs
Counter Culture herbs are meant to stay, well, on the counter. Right where you can see them, smell them and snip from them. Finish every last leaf, replenish, repeat. Your herbs should last 2-3 weeks from the time they are shipped from our greenhouses.
Remember, enjoying herbs with the roots attached cuts down on waste (living herbs last longer than cut herbs, so less ends up in the trash) and means they are their freshest for your next dish or project.
- Remove the carrying tote by cutting the side tabs. Lift your herb home out. Remove the protective sleeves and recycle.
- Place your water-ready herb home on your countertop. Water herbs immediately but be sure to check back and water as needed.
- Cook to your heart’s desire and enjoy every leafy bite. Replace your Counter Culture every 2-3 weeks, composting or tossing the remaining plants.
Once you’ve got your Counter Culture herbs perched on your countertop, what’s there to do? We believe the possibilities are endless with so much flavor and aroma within reach (herbs aren’t just for the kitchen!), but if we had to give some suggestions, we’d say:
Basil – Fragrant, sweet and relaxing
- Ground into pesto – on pasta, as a sandwich spread or even in place of red sauce on pizza
- Cut into a pasta sauce, meat marinade or bright salad dressing
- Muddled for cocktails, mocktails and basil lemonade
- Infused into a room spray or minced into a salt scrub
Mint – Sweet with a lingering cool
- Sprinkled on fresh fruit – think strawberries, blueberries or even a watermelon and feta salad
- Chopped for salad or as part of the salad dressing
- Creamed into butter or oil for baking cakes, cookies or fluffy cold desserts
- Brewed in water as a tea
Thyme – Spicy and woodsy
- Added to marinades to bring depth to meat
- Cooked in stews and soups
- Baked into and sprinkled over baked goods – especially those with cheese
- Sliced up for an herbed butter
