How to Make a Bouquet Garni

Bouquet Garni

A classic bouquet garni, often called for in French roasts, soups, and stews, includes:

1 part leaf thyme

1 part whole peppercorns

4 parts finely chopped parsley

1 bay leaf

Fresh or dried herbs can be used, or a combination of both.

Place herbs and seasonings in a cheesecloth square that is tied up with clean butcher's string.

For especially easy removal, make the string extra long and tie one end to the pot's handle.

For a variation, try experimenting with rosemary, tarragon, summer or winter savory, and whole cloves.
