Herbs and fruit are best enjoyed in season, unless you turn them into something wonderful like herbal jelly. Herbed jelly, or jam on your toast can do wonders for the start of a winter's day, to say nothing of what it could do to your Christmas ham. Even if you don't have time to start from scratch, you can still infuse your favorite jarred jellies with the essence of your herb garden. 'Homemade' herb jellies are also a great gift idea and a nice seasoning to have on hand in your kitchen.
