Read Peter's Gift Ideas for the Herbal Connoisseur!

Yes! You Still Have Time to Make Some Gifts!

And food gifts are always in style.  Here's a Gingersnap Biscotti and a link to lots of other recipes from Frontier Herbs. While you're there, explore their website - We've been buying our bulk herbs and spices from them since 1978
