Plant Information
Summer Savory is the big favorite of the "savory group" of herbs, and is a staple of cooking in Eastern Europe. There, it is used in stuffing, sausage, and many other meat dishes and stews. It's also recommended for egg, lentil, and vegetable dishes, and is always the number one recommendation for use with beans. The plants stay short (about 18 inches), are easy to grow, and easy to harvest. Their pink, white, and lavender blooms make every garden more beautiful, and their flavorful leaves can be harvested lightly after just six weeks (normal harvesting can begin at 10 weeks). Peppery in aroma and flavor, they also naturally repel insects and deer. Summer Savory is also helpful to have around for medicinal purposes. It's a natural when it comes to easing asthma and cold symptoms, and when ground up and used as a poultice, it's very effective in relieving the pain and itch of insect bites and other irritations.
