'Herbs to go with Pork' is often a headline I see in my emails. 

Herbs enhance all foods and have many health benefits.

Some herbs go particularly well with certain foods and we're exploring which herbs go with pork here.

There's a very long list of course and you can use them in any way you think best. Some of them go with other foods - herbs aren't exclusive and they don't discriminate!

Some ways to use them are to marinade the pork in a mixture of wine, vinegar or lemon juice and a herb or combination of herbs from this list. If you're an experienced cook, you'll know what to do, but if you're not, then this information might as well be in a foreign language.

So - the list of herbs to go with pork is here in the graphic below - after that, there are links to recipes to help you decide which way YOU want to use herbs with pork.
