North Shore Arugula

Arugula is also known as rocket, rucola, and roquette. It originated in the Mediterranean and has been a long-time favorite in Italian cooking. The ancient Romans ate arugula for good luck and it was an ingredient in various aphrodisiac potions throughout the ages. Arugula is rich in vitamin C and potassium.


north shore basil

Basil has a clove-like flavor with a strong, pungent, sweet smell. It is the ultimate complement to tomatoes, and also pairs nicely with onions, garlic, and olives. Basil is most well-known for its role in Italian cuisine; however, it is also often used in Asian cuisine.


North Shore Living Herbs Oregano

Oregano has a spicy and pungent flavor, similar to marjoram but not as sweet. This is a very bold herb and using it will make a dramatic impact in any recipe; a small amount goes a long way. Adding full sprigs of oregano to the cavity of poultry or fish can add subtle flavor while the meat is cooking.


North Shore Living Herbs Rosemary

The taste of rosemary is a cross between sage and lavender with a touch of ginger and camphor, sometimes described as peppery, warm, spicy, and resinous with a hint of bitterness. Full sprigs of rosemary will impart dramatic flavor and can be used by inserting them into the cavity or under the skin of poultry or fish so the flavor can seep into the meat while it is cooked; remove the sprigs before eating.
