Who knew? Herbs have a big role to play in reinventing sweet snacks and desserts. Our test kitchen got busy adding fresh herbs to just about anything sweet, with lip-smacking results. Strawberries are a natural pairing with basil in kids’ favourite, Eton Mess, and in our guilt-free tea loaf. Cool mint is ideal for a honeyed fruit salad and in watermelon popsicles. Fragrant thyme lends floral notes to puffy blueberry bread and baked brie. With herbs and sweets, your imagination is the only limit!
