Summer savory has so many uses and advantages! There is clearly no secret that summer savory is a versatile herb for many types of flavor, as it is a favorite in French, German, Italian, and Bulgarian recipes, just to name a few. For its sweeter flavor, summer savory wins over winter savory. Sprinkle whole summer savory leaves with confidence over green beans and delicious, hearty summer squash soups and early fall stews.
To really awe your family and leave them wanting more, combine summer savory with the mild onion flavor of chives, cracked pepper, and thyme to form a rub for fish (especially cod), or blend into premium ground beef that you intend to stuff into a tender red pepper.
As an aside, summer savory whole leaves are said to provide relief for bee and wasp stings. This ancient herb has been used for medicinal as well as for cooking purposes for centuries.
