We have produced a series of articles originally printed in 1912 from Mr. M.G. Kains, the associate editor of American Agriculturist. This book was an attempt to familiarize Americans with some of the more popular, healthier, and at that time less costly home grown seasoning agents to use in their cooking. Many of these articles are more appropriate today than ever before. We have over 16 of the most popular herbs at the turn of the 20th century that were commonly used in Europe and were making their way into American cuisine. The information from this book has been tagged on our Herbfest web site, with the searchable term - "heritage herbs". You can type that phrase into our search and you will find the results of our research into the Culinary Herbs book by Mr. Kains. Enjoy your herbs and their history and legends.
