Summer savory is an herb that belongs to the mint family. It is the dark green, narrow leaves of a bush grown widely throughout Yugoslavia and the United States. Savory is one of the most versatile herbs and enhances almost every dish from soups, stews and bean dishes to succotash, cabbage and sauerkraut.
Because of the pepper shortage in World War II, Germans substituted savory for that peppery flavor and some still keep this tradition alive today.
Summer savory has a clean, piney fragrance and peppery flavor which is great for sparking up heavy stews and chowders. The Romans used savory even before pepper and it also was considered an aphrodisiac.
