How to Make a Bouquet Garni

Bouquet Garni is a French herbal mixture. It consists of a collection of herbs, gathered together and tied into a bundle or sachet in cheesecloth, or directly tied together when using fresh herbs. Bouquet Garni is used to enhance the flavor of stews, broths or stocks.

  1. Gather together fresh herbs, such as parsley, thyme, bay leaves or rosemary.
  2. tie the bunch together with kitchen twine and leave a tail that you can use to remove the bunch from your pot.
