Summer Savory is one of those herbs you may have heard about but are not sure how to use. This herb is more widely used in Canada and Europe than the U.S.
You can use its tender leaves in dishes where you use thyme and sage. This herb grows in both summer and winter with the winter version tending to be a bit stronger if flavor.
Both varieties are popular with bean dishes as well as meats. Use this herb in place of sage in your favorite stuffing for a slightly sweeter taste.

Here are a few recipes using summer savory.

Cindy's Recipes and Writings

As a professional cook, I love creating exciting new recipes on the job as well as at home. Assisting in teaching low-income families how to buy, store and prepare healthy food through Penn State’s alliance with Pennsylvania’s Supercupboard Program was very rewarding. During my 11 years with the Master Gardener program, I taught horticultural therapy to assisted living patients using healthful, fr
esh grown food as a focal point. . My hands-on programs and instruction helped hundreds of children and adults learn about where their food comes from and how important fresh food is for your body.
Currently I’m a cook at a college in Pennsylvania. We prepare everything we can from scratch, including our potato chips that tout the seasoning of the day!
Of course I write about food; it's in my blood!
