Have You Tried?

In digging out space in the garage for the new (and bigger) washer and dryer, Richie unearthed a little book put out by a club that calls itself "The Southern California Unit, Herb Society of America."

Scattered among the pages of recipes is the phrase "Have you tried_____?" Here are some of them.

Anise seeds in apple sauce or baked apples?
