Home-Grown Pork Rub

Last night I was able to make a rub using all ingredients grown in our garden for the Pork tenderloin (except for the salt). I was not sure how it would turn out, as I used herbs that I have never cooked with before, and others that I am just starting to experiment with, but it turned out really well. We all loved the pork, Antonio ate everything we gave him, and he asked for seconds and then a third helping of the pork. The herbs I used were Lemon Verbena, Pineapple Sage, Common Sage, Rosemary, Cuban Oregano, and a pinch of Thyme (as that is barely big enough to harvest). Then I added some extra virgin olive oil and a kosher salt. It was definitely a nice feeling of being able to cook with herbs and vegetables that we are growing ourselves, where they were able to go straight from the garden into our dishes.

that's great! I can't wait for my stuff to start growing enough to use! I am looking forward to browsing the garden instead of the fridge. ;)
