It's a Food Blogga Give-Away for Gourmet Frozen Herbs

daregal herbs

We have all experienced it. You buy a bunch of bright green fresh basil or parsley at the supermarket on Sunday and by Wednesday, it's all wilted and brown.

That's why I'm pleased to introduce you to
Daregal Gourmet Herbs, a company specializing in fresh frozen herbs. That's right. Fresh herbs are chopped, washed, and packaged in user-friendly containers. Daregal offers basil, parsley, cilantro, dill and oregano as well as three spice blends.

Want to try some yourself? Well, here's your chance.
Two lucky Food Blogga readers will receive four different spices from Daregal. Here's what you have to do to win:

Just tell me what your favorite herb is by the end of the day Saturday, December 20, 2008. That's it.

Two winners will be randomly selected and announced in a future post next week, so please check back. Don't have a blog? Just leave an active email address where you can be reached. Also, winners will need to provide their real names and mailing addresses. My apologies to my international readers, but given the nature of the prize, winners will have to be limited to US residents.

Hands down my favourite herb is basil. Every kind of basil imaginable makes it into my dishes!!!

Basil is definitely my favorite fresh herb to eat. Rosemary is my favorite herb to smell and use as an oil. And oregano is my favorite dry herb.

Justine said...

What a great way to get fresh taste!
My favorite herb is Rosemary. Maybe it's because it's the last one in the herb garden every year, but I LOVE the earthyness.

I love dill and chives!

Cookie baker Lynn said...

Basil, no doubt about it!

Christie Stump said...

Definitely cilantro for me! I LOVE it! Basil and rosemary are the runners up.

Amy said...

Hmmm... I think it's a toss-up between tarragon and dill.

City Girl said...

Basil - now if only it tasted year-round the way it does at the height of summer

ocm said...

Gosh...usually my favorite herb is the one I'm using at the moment to make a scrumptious bit of something. I use a lot of oregano and rosemary...great for different meats!

: )

Ellen said...

oh that's such a tough choice! i'm torn between cilantro, basil and rosemary. it depends on my mood and time of year. my email is ellenp1214@gmail.com

Joanna said...

Hmmm... I love both basil and dill, but if I have to pick one, it would probably be basil. And I really like parsley too, though it seems to get overlooked/taken for granted... but it's so versatile! (Really, my preference is for anything but cilantro.)

YankeeSoaper said...

Tough to decide Susan. I adore rosemary & thyme, but cook so much using basil. Happy holidays!

Melody Polakow said...

Basil and Cilantro!

Fahrenheit 350° said...

I'm going to have to go with Parsley! Sweets@fahrenheit350.com

Aunt Kristina said...

I LOVE dill--for some reason I cannot get enough of it lately. Could be a pregnancy thing but still. So Yummy!

the italian dish said...

Parsley, hands down. It's my go to herb for flavor and for presentation. I keep a fresh bunch of parsley in a damp paper towel at all times in my fridge. After that, it's thyme.

Melissa Dow said...

Basil, all the way. I live in an apartment, so I can't grow it the way I'd like to, but my mom plants 15 bushes every year and makes Pesto in the fall. When I open up one of the jars, it's like summer has arrived all over again.

my email is melissedow@gmail.com

Suzan said...

I am a basil girl but I grow it year round. What I hate buying because it wilts so quickly and would love winning is cilantro!

Ivy said...

My favourite herb is .... tough question but if I have to chose among my favourite which is mint, cilantro, oregano and parsley, I would say parsley because it's the one I cannot do without.

K8 said...

My favorite herb right now is cilantro! I'm putting it in everything as of late...

My email is kjlaufer at hotmail dot com.

Shreela said...

Favorite single herb is cilantro; the smell at the store makes me swoon LOL.

Fav herb mix is Bell's Seasoning, which no one where I live has ever heard of, but I bet you might have, since you grew up in RI, where my mother's from. I read that Martha Stewart used it when making stuffing with Jennifer Garner.

How is the winner going to get frozen herbs delivered? I don't keep up on some things, and didn't know frozen things could be shipped.
