Absinthe harvest

September 8, 2011 , , , ,

Stilleben with absinthe carafe

Absinthe carafe from Alsace and a green absinthe pitcher from Switzerland

Fresh leaves of absinthe herbs

For the photoshooting I picked a few leaves of Grande Wormwood (artemisia absinthium), Petite Wormwood (artemisia pontica) and Hyssop (hyssopus) from our homegrown plants. They are not only pretty but the fragrance of the fresh leaves is also very intensive and aromatic. Growing these plants taught me to recognize the herbs when tasting absinthe.
