Descriptions and typical usages of 23 of colonial America's most common spices and herbs. Brief descriptions of the cultivation requirements of the herbs. Published 1997. 4 authentic recipes, 168 research notes.

If practicing domesticity well, the Colonial woman could not fail to know and grow herbs. The family depended upon herbs for medicine, food, and for a pleasant touch of beauty and fragrance. The American colonial wife did not cultivate spices, since they thrive in tropical climes, but she certainly enjoyed utilizing those exotic spices in her kitchen and home. Author Patricia B. Mitchell discusses the uses to which milady put these plants in Colonial Spices and Herbs, a 37-page book containing fascinating information, quotations, and descriptions. Especially helpful is the explanation of ancient herbals, "humors," and the "Doctrine of Signatures."
