Introduction – Knowing More about Radishes
I was once being shown around the organic farm of a friend of mine, and I noticed him giving me rather funny looks. “You have never been around an organic farm before, have you? Or it is possible that you have not lived in this area, have you.” Naturally, I had to ask him what made him say that, because I was used to going around organic farms, once being an organic gardener myself. He said that any native of that particular area would immediately pounce upon a radish growing in the fields, and pull it out – without waiting for an invitation from the owner – dip it into the nearest water source, and sink his teeth into it.
When in Rome do as the Romans do. I did so. And thus I enjoyed the crisp natural sweetish taste of this taproot, Raphanus sativus, which has been the mainstay of so many civilizations since prehistoric times.
The Romans could not do without the radish. In fact, it was eaten raw, cooked, boiled, made into salads, and not only the taproot, but even the leaves were finished by those people who enjoyed good food.
The ancient Greeks and Romans used to make a paste of radish and onions with dried fish and eat it with every meal. In fact Apicius has spoken about radishes, best eaten with pepper in “his Art Of Cooking in Imperial Rome.” So I would not be surprised if the ubiquitous fish sauce, used to liquefy and spice dishes, and known as garum was not also added to dishes with another sharp flavoring agent – radish.
One is grateful that radishes are available all over the world, but whether people use them for their own benefit as much as they should, is debatable. That is because many people think that radishes like onions and garlic have a distinctive odor. That is why, at parties or at get-togethers, they are just served as salad helpings, accompanied with onion slices and tomatoes. Read more…add-to-cart-click-here

Introduction
A keen young budding botanist once asked me, “Ma’am, how do we know the difference between herbs, shrubs and trees?” Well, the answer is that a majority of herbal plants are definitely soft stemmed and smaller in size when compared to shrubs which are woody and often branched. Herbs are annuals and sometimes perennials. Shrubs are perennials like trees. And trees are definitely different, because they have long woody trunks, which are branched, grow to huge heights, and live really long.

Herbs have been used since ancient times, for medicinal value, and also for cookery purposes. Shrubs are mainly ornamental plants, with their leaves and flowers being used as culinary accompaniments, and also for medicinal purposes. Herbs can be shrubs. Shrubs can be herbs.
Woody stemmed bushes like rosemary, thyme, lavender, winter savory, and Sage come in the herbal category. The serious use of plants in medicine is in the province of homeopathic practitioners and natural herbalists who employ most species of herbs from mosses to trees in making their herbal remedies.
This book is going to give you an introduction to some of the herbs, which are easy to grow and you can obtain easily fresh or dried.

How did people get to know about herbs in ancient times? The awareness of the edible as well as the remedial qualities of herbs must have been gained by happy and sad experiences in prehistoric days. When food was scarce and often very nasty, pungent herbs made it more palatable. The larger succulent leaves, and plants provided salads and vegetables as an accompaniment to hunted mastodons and other prehistoric beasties.
Soon, man found out that some of these herbs could cure and heal wounds and ease suffering, as even the tastiest culinary herb has a real medicinal value and virtue. This is how prehistoric man found out that Moss – sphagnum – was an excellent healer of wounds. Just imagine he went hunting and got into an argument with a sabertooth. And there he was with wounds all over his body, lying nose down on the mossy ground.
So he found himself clutching a handful of moss, squeezing it, and trying to stop the blood flow from the wounds. Hey, the Moss was so absorbent, that it stopped the wound from bleeding any more. So back he came back to his tribal camp with Moss sticking all over his body. After a week or so, he noticed that his wounds were healing really well.
Now, most of this was just by trial and error, and luck. His genetic makeup was strong, and his diet conducive to good natural healing. But that meant that the next time he went on the warpath with other tribes in the vicinity, he made sure that the healer had packed lots of sphagnum, along with food in a pouch for every warrior.
Early civilizations inherited this knowledge and developed it even further, and both doctors and cooks used herbs appreciatively and with increasing beneficial effects.
Doctors experimented with every kind of plant and cooks with the more deliciously flavored types. Read more…
