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