Organic herbs - a world of its own
When we talk about aromatic herbs, we mean in a narrower sense all parts of plants whose flowers, stems or leaves can be used to season food. In a broader sense, however, seeds, roots and onions are also included in the case of herbs, for example aniseed or garlic cloves. All of these valuable parts of plants have one thing in common: They are carriers of an abundance of aromatic substances with which they enrich and enchant our food from day to day.

The best storage for dried herbs
The secret of good taste in each of our organic herbs is based on their wealth of individual, essential oils. As soon as the structure of a leaf, stem or seed is destroyed, its aromas can literally dissolve into thin air. The warmer and the more air the dried herbs get, the easier this process is. The herbs therefore lose their taste over time. Therefore, you should make sure to keep dried herbs and aromatic herbs as undamaged as possible. It is best to keep them in aroma-tight jars or jars as dry as possible and in a dark and cool place. Incidentally, most of our bags are also made in such a way that you can easily close them again. When you order organic herbs online, you are ordering a lot that you don't have to store for a long time but can use up within about 6 months. In this way you preserve an optimal aroma of the aromatic herbs for the good taste of your dishes.
Buying organic herbs is a matter of trust
When you buy herbs in the Ambroisia online shop, you are on the safe side when it comes to their naturalness. Because (almost) all of our products come from organic farming. If herbs - as well as our seasoning powder, herbal mixtures, table salt and pepper - are organic, you can assume that pollution with pollutants and pesticides will be excluded, or at least minimized. We are fans of whole seeds, leaves or fruits, whose flavors can only be released in your kitchen when they are very fresh by chopping and grinding. We have already worked where it makes sense and rubbed leaves and stems. Convince yourself: Look, smell and taste in the world of our high-quality spices.
The world of herbs and spices is as diverse and colorful as nature itself. Herbs not only refine the dishes in your kitchen, they also give them the decisive touch that makes them so special and unmistakable.
Abrosia, the online shop, therefore offers you a large, high-quality selection of dried herbs. The products - either air-dried or freeze-dried - serve as an ideal supplement or alternative to fresh herbs and impress with their intense taste. They are either cut or rubbed, which means they will last for a long time.
In our range you will find many classics that should not be missing in any well-stocked kitchen, such as dill, bay leaves, lovage or thyme. Some of them are sprinkled in during cooking so that the aroma can slowly penetrate the dish. With others such as parsley, you tend to refine the dish towards the end of the preparation.
Of course, Ambrosia's range also includes the best selected herbs from Mediterranean cuisine such as basil, oregano or rosemary, which harmonize particularly well with Mediterranean ingredients such as olive oil, seafood or ripe tomatoes.
Anyone looking for other delicious herbs will also find what they are looking for at Ambrosia: Whether Turkish sumac, Thai lemongrass or Chinese star anise - you will find almost everything here! Of course, we also offer a large number of the dried herbs in organic quality or as regional products from Ireland. So you can easily order your dried herbs online and receive them free of charge within a few days.
