Mint, lavender, chamomile, thyme - herbs say "flavorful" in a way that no other ingredient can. But making the best use of in-season herbs can be a challenge for cooks who revel in using them in a wide range of dishes, from everyday to elegant. In Herbal Sweets, Ruth Bass presents more than 30 delicious recipes, familiar and unusual, that will enhance any meal with the sensual delights of herbs. Using healthful, fragrant herbs, the sweetened dishes here are worthy of gourmet presentation.

From the imaginative Rose Geranium Syrup to the traditional Mint Julep, Herbal Sweets contains a captivating array of ideas to enable every cook to create tasty cookies and cakes, candies and tarts, jellies and chutneys - all with the wonderful flavors, colors, and aromas that herbs fresh from the garden provide.
