Satureja_ species

Every dish you make with summer savory will find your family savoring a flavor similar to dill with a hint of thyme. The delicate spice of summer savory has made it a favorite in kitchens, especially when teamed with early crops of green beans and new potatoes. An easy-growing herb, summer savory thrives in typical well-drained garden soil, starting quickly from seed. Regular harvesting encourages new growth and yields bushy plants. Summer savory foliage is fine textured, pairing nicely with the broader leaves of bush beans, beets, basil, or Swiss chard. Dried savory shines when combined with rosemary, thyme, lavender, and bay leaf, the basic foundation for Herbes de Provence, to which other herbs, such as marjoram, basil, and fennel are added.
