Why does Dream Dinners use dry herbs instead of fresh?
Every Dream Dinner recipe is designed to be frozen then thawed. Dry herbs hold up better than fresh in the freezing process. One of the reasons Dream Dinners are so delicious is because the dried herbs rehydrate in your dinner as it thaws. When your dinner is cooked or simmered that is when they will release their flavor.
One of the benefits of Dream Dinners is that the seasonings we use in our stores have not been sitting in a cupboard for years. With the volume of servings we provide our seasonings are used up very quickly compared to most at home seasonings…making Dream Dinners taste better!
