HERBS DE PROVENCE MIX
4 parts thyme leaves
2 parts rosemary leaves
2 parts basil leaves
2 parts savory leaves
2 parts marjoram leaves
1 part lavender buds
1 part fennel or anise seeds
To make a fresh herbs de povince mince herbs, blend and use in your favorite recipes. Or to keep the blend for future use: dry the herbs separately, then combine and keep in an airtight container.
WHITE BEANS WITH WINE AND TOMATO BRAISED GARLIC
28 garlic cloves
1 ½ cups dry white wine ( I like Tariquet’s ugni blanc/colombard blend)
1 tsp sea salt
4 Tbsp. butter
1 Tbsp. Herbs de Province
½ cup sun dried tomatoes, thin sliced
2 cans cannellini beans, well drained
crusty bread for dipping and spreading
Place the peeled garlic cloves, wine, salt, pepper, butter and herbs and tomatoes in a saucepan. Bring to a boil then reduce heat to a simmer for 20 minutes or until garlic is soft and the liquid in the pan is syrupy. Add white beans. Serve with slices of crusty French bread.
