Our end of month wildcard ingredient is back, and this week we’re talking summer savory. An easy to grow backyard herb that can add that delicious flavour your dish is craving. Summer savory can be used in subtitution for sage, so if ever you see a recipe calling for sage and are feeling wild and adventurous (okay, maybe not so wild) try this out!
This tasty herb has been shown to provide relief for nose and helps with overall congestion. It is also a useful digestive aid for flatulence and colic. Bet you didn’t know this: Rubbing a sprig of Summer Savory on a bee or wasp sting is said to give instant relief.
Here are some recipes we’ll be trying out this week:
- Cherry tomato, feta cheese & summer savory tart (Liberty London Girl)
- Chicken Stew with Savory (Epicurious)
- Split Pea Soup with Leeks & Summer Savory (Cooking by Mary)
As always, we’re looking for recipes you go to when you have savory lying around the house. Make sure to drop us a comment!
