Winter Savory

Winter Savory or ‘Satureja montana’ is a fantastic herb.  You know when the smell just instantly communicates delicious cooking to you?   Each time I smell this herb, I am inspired to google recipes in which to use it, and then end up adding it to whatever dish I happen to be cooking that evening with varying degrees of success. It is easy to grow, hardy and evergreen.  Plant it somewhere sunny in nice, free draining soil.  I keep mine in a pot by the backdoor.  It produces pretty white flowers in late summer too - the bees seem to love them and with good reason. It is a great source of nectar for them. 

You can add this herb to soups and stews and use it in stuffing.  It’s especially good with bean dishes.
