Fragile Herbs

There are five major herbs that are characterized by their soft, fragile leaves: parsley, chervil, mint, and basil. They are at their perfumed, pungent best when freshly picked and carefully handled so they do not bruise. The leaves, particularly of tarragon, basil and mint, bruise easily and are best coarsely chopped. Fragile herbs are often eaten raw and should be cooked only lightly.

Storing, Cooking, and Preserving Your Fresh Herbs

To store fresh herbs with short stalks, put them in an unsealed plastic bag or wrap them in a moist paper towel and refrigerate them. They should keep for about a week. Herbs with longer stalks can be treated like cut flowers: put them in a small container of water and leave them at room temperature, or refrigerate them, covered with a loose plastic bag.

Herbs

Many herbs grow wild in the benign climate of Southern Europe, and are cultivated in the less hospitable north. Colonial settlers brought their plants to the New World, growing them primarily for medicine, but also for dyeing clothes and for the kitchen. Despite this migration, many herbs are still firmly identified with the cuisines of particular countries.

My Online Shopping Mall

My "shining corner" of my mall is the Mother Earth's Minerals. Here you can find the sparkling beauty of precious and semi-precious gemstones. Since this section is all about the finished products from Mother Earth's Minerals, jewelries made from platinum, white and yellow gold, copper, silver, titanium, tungsten and stainless steel are also available.

There is always a history of these jewels, the beginning of its existence. In the book of Jewels: A Secret History by Victoria Finlay, she said, "...some rare stones have amazing and frightening dynastic tales, every jewel, however small or flawed, has its story: about the earth that was excavated to retrieve it, the families who depend on it, the people who designed the cutting method, those who bought or were given it, and the meanings and properties attributed to it. Whole human, geological, and cultural histories are wrapped up in every stone we wear or desire, even if it is only an imitation. So in one way it is the stones and jewels themselves, hidden in mines and oceans-and occasionally in tombs and wrecks and pirates' hoards- that are the "secrets" of the subtitle; the other secrets are the cultural layers of meaning and fascination that can always be found wrapped around them." A proof that all matters have "elements" in it.

Mother Earth's Minerals

"A knowledge of how to use different minerals and mineral mixtures already existed in the prehistoric times. Around 3500BC, copper and tin, gold and silver as well as numerous gemstones (malachite, turquoise, lapis lazuli, opal, agate) were in use in Mesapotamia for jewellery and implements.
The ability to find metallic element in rock and to smelt them out of it was based in early antiquity on observation and experience. A scientific method of looking at the relations between minerals did now exist. The first scientific publication of what was then known of the mineral world was written by the Greek philosopher Aristotle (384-322 BC). His mineral system was still regarded as valid into the nineteenth century.
