- Fenugreek is an annual that grows 12-18" high with branched, trifoliate leaves. Fenugreek is in the legume family as are peanuts and garden peas. It produces "pea pods" that contain yellow-brown seeds. These seeds are mucilaginous when cooked and smell like maple syrup. Fenugreek is used to flavor imitation maple syrup. Externally, they can be used as a poultice on wounds and sores. Drinking tea made with the seeds aids digestion, and gargling with the tea relieves a sore throat. The seeds are also known for increasing breast milk. Fenugreek is a popular spice in East Indian cooking. Not for use during pregnancy; can reduce blood sugar levels.
