Curry Leaves

Without curry leaves I think the world would be a poorer place.

CURRY LEAF ~ Murraya koenigii. I can’t face spending over £9.00, plus p&p on a single curry leaf plant. SoI  have bought a fresh batch of curry leaves from an Oriental shop and this morning picked some of the strongest looking stems/twigs, took off the lower leaves and placed some in a glass of water and some, with a bit of rooting powder into a sandy compost mix, to see if I can’t get them to grow myself. I’ll leave them indoors on a sunny windowsill until I see some signs of life or new growth, and then as summer warms up I’ll place them outside, again in a sunny spot.

The rest of the leaves, were stripped from the stalks and frozen in an air-tight container.

Here’s wishing for fresh homegrown curry leaves to scent up our lives
