What do you know about Summer Savory?
It is a member of the mint family of herbs, summer savory originates in southern Europe and has been used in food preparation for over 2,000 years. It has a sweet, delicate aroma.

What can you cook with Summer Savory??
We use it in soups, stews, and marinades, and with meats and vegetables. Germans refer to it as “the bean herb” because it is especially good with string beans, limas, navy beans, soybeans, all types of broad beans and it is used in many traditional Bavarian stewed bean recipes.
Summer Savory goes well with many other vegetables, such as cabbage, tomatoes, green peppers, asparagus, cauliflower, mixed greens, and rice. This versatile herb is also tasty in stuffing or dressing, sausages, and pork pie, and with chicken, fish, game meats, beef, lamb, and eggs (scrambled eggs, omelets, quiche and frittatas).
When boiled with strong smelling foods like broccoli or sauerkraut, it helps prevent cooking odors and when it is steeped in vinegar or salad dressing, it lends an aromatic flavor. Summer savory can also be tossed into a salad or over vegetables and you will get a zesty, citrus flavor with every bite. It is a must when making gazpacho. People on low-sodium diets often find it an agreeable salt substitute.
