This April 8, 2013 photo shows the ingredients for tomato sauce at a field trial nursery in Ventura, Calif. Almost 70 percent of all home canners are growing herbs -- second only to tomatoes -- with about one-third drying or freezing them for later use. Herbs are popular for flavoring sauces, soups, meats, vinegars, oils, butters, alcoholic drinks, salts and jellies. (AP Photo/Dean Fosdick)

Home canners are growing and preserving herbs at an increasing rate each year, with basil as the most popular followed by chives, cilantro and dill.
