Herbs for holiday gatherings

Herbal Greetings –
We thoroughly delight in this season of gratitude and gathering! For many of us, the holidays are filled with warm memories of special dishes, enticing aromas, and mouth-watering flavors.
Deliciously good and good-for-you food is something we can get behind.
Sweetly spiced gingersnap cookies and pumpkin pie aroma fills the kitchen…
Cinnamon-filled kugel baking in the oven…
Eggnog topped with ground nutmeg for visiting guests…
Stuffing laced with sage leaves on the tabletop…
Cheerful mugs of botanical-infused mulled wine and cider to warm us from the inside out…
These herb-infused recipes hold a special place in our herbalist kitchens and holiday gatherings, and they make this season all the more heartfelt.
The staple culinary herbs in these recipes have a myriad of benefits outside of their aroma, flavor, and fond memories – like antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, circulation-stimulating, and carminative properties.
We’ve captured this season’s very best warming herbs into this sweetly designed, festive tea towel set so you can spotlight these delightful plant allies in the heart of your home all throughout this season – they’re one part adorable + one part informational!
It’s no secret by now that we love adding herbs to our holiday baking! We’ve rounded up some of our favorite holiday dishes to share with you below.
Herb-Centered Recipes for your upcoming holidays!
If you love pumpkin and like your desserts not super sweet, this scrumptious gluten-free Sweet and Spicy Pumpkin Pie might just become your favorite holiday pie featuring a surprising spice blend of rosemary, cayenne, and allspice.
This Rosemary Honey Shortbread features the star herb, rosemary, of course, but would you be surprised to know it also calls for lavender? We include lots of optional ingredients to inspire you to take this recipe in many directions!
Who can resist the aroma of Spiced Pumpkin Bread baking away in the oven? We love the flavors of cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves that come through in every bite!
Without being overly sugary, this sweet and tart chutney makes a great accent to savory dishes. We suggest this Raisin-Pom Chutney recipe would be a scrumptious addition to your charcuterie board!
Cranberry sauce is a holiday classic, but our Zingy Cranberry Sauce will up your recipe game! The citrus and spice are distinctive and add perfect sour and pungent accents to the astringent cranberry base.
This Apple Spiced Liqueur Recipe is a great bev for your guests to sip away while food prep is underway. The classic combination of sweet apples, cinnamon sticks, cloves, brown sugar, and rum will immediately taste like fall!

It’s that sweet-tartness of blackberry that makes the perfect match to sage’s fragrant astringency and warmth. This Easy Pear Fruit Crisp with Blackberry-Sage Sauce is going to be a crowd pleaser at any gathering! Serve if warm and topped with either your favorite whipped cream or ice cream.
A great way to use leftover pie apples or use up apples before they turn, French Apple Cinnamon Tea is a sweet, warm, and exquisite little treat. Bonus: it’s family friendly!
