On the farm KAMARANTHO in Kamari village of Paros, we have found, recorded and are affectionately protecting dozens of plant treasures. We have also planted and are organically farming more traditional aromatic herbs of the Aegean, which adapted beautifully to the local conditions and are now thriving and enriching the land with their divine scents.
After three years of care, we, the people of KAMARANTHO, are happy to offer a collection of certified organic herbs, representative of the gifts of Parian land. We cared for and harvested them by hand, we dried them naturally and in small quantities at a time, we processed them also by hand, with the experienced help of local women, and we avoided crushing them too fine so that they retain their essential oils, flavours and aromas for longer. And we are proud for the results.
You can enjoy our herbs as hot or cold teas and infusions, individually or in combinations, and benefit from their healing and health-promoting properties.
However, their use in cooking and gastronomy is another story that remains to be written. Try using savory in bread and pretzels, put marjoram in your red sauces and stuffed vegetables, use sage with your leaks and pies, rosemary with fish and pork, put dittany in your béchamel sauce or fish roe dip, oregano and thyme in roasts and salads, mint and spearmint in rice and minced meat, mint and lemon balm in your drinking water and lemonades.
Above all, search, discover, and create your own unique and healthy flavours and aromas. And enjoy.
