Add rosemary and thyme to pea and ham soup

Rosemary and thyme work well in pea and ham soup

Culinary herbs are not to be underestimated as a staple ingredient in a chef's repertoire.

McCormick's resident expert Chef Steve says one of his favourite things about them is that they make a great seasoning.

Furthermore, it is naturally more interesting to make use of new combinations of herbs, rather than using pure salt.

Indeed, they are also a key element of some recipes in their own right - even if they do not necessarily get included in the name of a dish.

For instance, no pea and ham soup would be complete without the inclusion of rosemary and thyme.

Alice Hart - chef and author of the Friends at my Table cookbook - also recommended the use of bay leaves in her recipe for the starter, which she shared in an article for the Daily Telegraph.

"A ham hock can be ridiculously salty, so be sure to soak it in plenty of cold water before cooking," she commented.
