Bouquet Garni

Bouquet garni is a selection of aromatic plants and spices used to flavor a sauce, stock, or other dishes. They are usually tied together in a small bundle to prevent them from dispersing in the liquid, and removed before serving.

Ingredients

  • 5 sprigs Parsley,
  • 3 sprigs Fresh thyme
  • 10 whole Black peppercorns
  • 1 large Bay leaf
  • 1 small Leek green part only

Instructions

  • Place the bay leaf, thyme, parsley, and celery on one piece of green leek. Cover with the remaining piece of green leek. Tie securely with fine string, leaving a length of string attached so that the bouquet garni can be easily retrieved.

Notes

The composition of a Bouquet Garni may vary, and it may also include, like in Provence, some rosemary. The herbs can be enclosed in a small cheesecloth bag. The size of a Bouquet Garni will depend on the size of your pot.
