Summer Savory is like a bundle of herbs, flavours resembling oregano and thyme with a peppery kick. When added to dishes it can enhance flavour without the addition of salt or pepper helping reduce the amount of salt used in cooking.
It is a strong easy growing annual perfect with all dishes containing beans but works just as well with vegetables such as potatoes and mushrooms, tomatoes, or vegetable soups, especially those containing pulses.
It is also great cooked with meat such as pork or beef in roasts and stews, or chicken and turkey rubbed on the skin or used as a stuffing ingredient. Also fresh piked leaves are great added to salads for a flavour boost.
