Quick and easy herb with a rich, thyme-like flavor.
A major component of the always-useful herbes de Provence, Summer Savory is a pungent, peppery addition to summer-fresh vegetables. Summer Savory grows to about a foot tall and sprouts pale lilac labiate flowers in July. Ancient medicinal uses included stopping bee sting pain and curing flatulence and colic. Summer Savory is typically favored over its winter counterpart (literally Winter Savory) and once enjoyed a thriving popularity. The ease of growing this fragrant and tasty herb might just bring it back into the spotlight.
