Botanical name: Marrubium vulgare

Horehound has been used as a bitter condiment and as a candy, but is too bitter for most tastes. In Europe, the plant has been used to flavor salads, soup, fish and chicken. It’s been recommended as a seasoning for meat, stews, sauces, cakes, and cookies and suggested that it would also be suitable for stronger-tasting vegetables. Extracts are used to flavor liqueurs, nonalcoholic beverages, ice cream, candy, and baked goods. A substitute for hops in beer, it is still sold as Horehound Ale in Europe.

Warning: Not to be used during pregnancy.

Origin: Poland
