Herbs For Fall

 

 

For fall celebrations herbs make one of the best food, tea, and decorative items.

Herbs have been used since ancient times in the celebration of autumn. In particular, they were used to flavor the foods and drinks of the autumnal equinox celebrations. They were also thrown on bon fires to send up messages of thanks to the gods for the crops for which the people were thankful.

Today, we still use herbs for flavorings and herbal teas. A stick of cinnamon in a cup of hot apple cider can be very comforting on a cool autumn evening.
