Description

(Satureja hortensis) With slender bronze green leaves and lilac tubular flowers, this hardy annual makes an attractive addition to the herb garden. Summer Savory lends an aromatic peppery tang to soups and seafoods. It's mild flavour is useful as an alternative to Sage or Thyme, and it is also used to aid digestion, reduce fevers and soothe bee stings.

 

Summer Savory is preferred over Winter Savory for use in sausages because of its sweeter, more delicate aroma. It plays an important role in Bulgarian cuisine, providing a strong flavour to a variety of dishes.

 

Summer Savory is also a traditional popular herb in Atlantic Canada, where it is used in the same way Sage is elsewhere. It is the main flavoring in dressing for many fowl, mixed with ground pork and other basic ingredients to create a thick meat dressing known as cretonnade (cretonade) which may be eaten with turkey, goose and duck. It also is used to make stews such as fricot, and in meat pies. It is usually available year-round in local grocery stores in dried form and is used in varying proportions, sometimes added to recipes in large generous heaping spoonfuls (such as in cretonnade), and sometimes more subtly (as in beans, for which Savory has a natural affinity). It is also widely used as a seasoning for grilled meats and barbecues, as well as in stews and sauces.

 

In Germany, Summer Savory is also called Bohnenkraut, or bean herb, because it pairs so well with bean dishes.
