About The Spice
Summer Savory has a clean, piney fragrance and peppery flavor which is great for sparking up heavy stews and chowders.
The Romans used savory before pepper was widely used. It also was considered an aphrodisiac. Savory is the dark green, narrow leaves of a bush that is grown widely throughout both Yugoslavia and the United States.
Garlic Bread: Sprinkle over buttered garlic bread in place of parsley to add color and mild spice.
Tomato Soup: Add to tomato soup for subtle peppery notes.
