Savory, a delicate herb related to rosemary and thyme, has been used for thousands of years and was even more popular in Rome than pepper! Savory is composed of velvety leaves that are dark green and fairly iridescent and has a slightly peppery taste similar to dill. It accentuates almost any dish. Pairs well with rosemary, thyme, lavender, and bay leaf.
Spice Fun Fact: Of almost thirty types of savory, only two are used primarily for culinary purposes, summer and winter savory. While both are strong in flavor, summer is lightly sweeter.
