Foundation. Flavor. Food.
Summer Savory has a peppery bite with a light, herby flavor and aroma and the taste is a subtle cross between marjoram, mint and thyme. Also frequently called Savory Herb, Savory Spice, Garden Savory or the Bean Herb it is indigenous to the Mediterranean region and is a member of the mint family. More common and slightly milder than winter savory it possesses a strong flavor until it is cooked where it mellows considerably.
As with many spices and herbs it is best to add toward the end of the cooking process as it quickly loses it flavor when cooked too long.
Summer Savory is popular in flavored vinegars, herb butters, stuffing and meat pies and is frequently used with beans, beets, cabbage, chicken, fish, eggs, salads, chutneys, potatoes, cheese, sweet peppers, vinaigrette dressings and in soups (particularly beef, chicken and just about any creamy soup).
Works well in combination with basil, bay, cumin, garlic, marjoram, mint, oregano, parsley, rosemary and thyme.
In September of 2019 our Chef/Owner, David Humphrey, started A&H Provisions to help bring a local option for spices to the Atlanta, Georgia area. An option that will give local residents the ability to have a spice merchant help them make the right choices when purchasing their spices. We will source our product so as to provide you with freshest product possible.
