Product Information

PRODUCT INFO

Fresh savory has a strong spicy-peppery flavor and resinous odor similar to thyme.  Prior to widespread use of long pepper and black pepper, savory filled a similar role in European cuisine.

There are two common varieties of savory: Summer Savory can be slightly less bitter and more tender than Winter Savory, but they can be used interchangably.

The non-organic variety is usually summer savory, whereas the organic variety is usually winter savory.  A different variety may be substituted due to availability.

STORAGE

Storage:

Fresh savory should be stored in a plastic bag in your refrigerator crisper drawer.



For long term storage of savory, we recommend drying it on the stem. The best drying method is hanging it in bunches to dry over time, but you can also dry savory in a 185 degree oven. Dried savory can be stored in an air tight container in a cool, dry place. It will likely be significantly less potent than fresh.

Shelf Life:

Up to two weeks fresh, six months dried.
