Said to be sweeter than Winter Savory, Summer Savory is just as versatile - if not more so! With an aromatic, almost peppery, flavour - the chopped raw leaves add a real zing to salads.

When added to stews and meat dishes not only does it add its classic peppery taste but also makes food easier digest - particulalry useful for bean dishes as it will reduce flatulence!

  • Annual.
  • Likes full sun.
  • Prefers well drained, rich, alkaline soil.
  • Reaches 10" (25 cm) tall.
  • More mild flavour than its Winter Cousin.
  • Attractive white/pink flowers July to September.
  • Culinary Uses
  • Good for salt free diets.
  • Can be used for stuffing and stews.
  • Good accompaniment for beans (as counteracts the flatulence).
  • Adds that special tang to a variety of dishes.
  • Has been used commercially to flavour salami.
  • Can be added to sauces and vinegars (as the Romans did).
  • Medicinal Uses
  • Antiseptic properties.
  • Aids digestion and eases flatulence.
  • Can help diarrhoea.
  • Can be used as a tonic and is particularly good after a fever.
  • Can stimulate appetite.
