Savory Ground Organic Dried Herb

Savory tastes somewhere between thyme and mint with a dash of pepper. Particularly good in bean soup, Steenbergs organic savory works well in herb mixes particularly when combined with thyme, rosemary and sage.

Savory comes in two major varieties - summer and winter savory.  Steenbergs savory is summer savory, Satureja hortensis.  Summer savory is an annual herb that is small and slender, whch grows to 45cm high (18 inches).  Savory has hairy branching stems with leaves that are 5-12mm long (0.25-0.5 inches).  Savory leaves are bronzey green in colour and are similar in shape to tarragon leaves, but smaller.  Summer savory has delightful small pink or white flowers that blossom in late summer.  The aroma of summer savory leaves is fragrant, with aromas of thyme and hints of marjoram, while its taste is similarly herby but with an appetizing peppery bit to them.  Savory is one of those herbs whose flavour intensifies on drying so is preferred dry to fresh like bay (at least by me).  For more on savory, try Ingredientia and Wikipedia (the fount of all web knowledge!).

As for culinary ideas, summer savory works well blended with other herbs in mixes like bouquet garni and fines herbes.  Or savory is good with egg dishes, broad beans or peas or lentils, or rubbed into chicken before roasting.  For some cooking ideas, why not look at Allrecipes.

Organic savory powder is part of Steenbergs range of over 400 organic spices, seasonings, peppers, herbs, organic Fairtrade flavoured sugars, organic teas and hot chocolates and organic Fairtrade extracts and flower water.
