Use Gourmet Garden Cold Blended Pastes the same way you would use fresh herbs and spices, as much or as little to taste. When following a recipe, replace the named herb or spice by just the Cold Blended Paste instead! There is no picking, chopping, or washing! Generally spices are added at the beginning of the cooking process and herbs towards the end and we encourage you to add according to your own taste.
