mugwort 斑叶艾蒿

Dear spunkz,

Mugwort is kind of herbs. It believed can relief menstrual pain. Its has long history in medication. I love this herbs very much. I try to search it when I was stay in connought last time, but pasar malam do not know what is it. I used buy it in ipoh. we called it '艾'.

Actually, the original recipe is suggest to use tarragon, but i totally do not know what is it. Then i search it on the web. Finally i know that tarragon is same genus with mugwort, and my house got it so i try it. From the book, tarragon (from French) is very strong taste and aroma. It usually use to make sauce.

Using mugwort, the outcome is- the aroma and taste not very strong (maybe i didn't add enough). By the way, I think basil, or parsley can give you the strong aroma.
