The robust flavor of Melissa’s Savory makes it a delicious addition to all bean dishes.
It’s is no wonder Savory is called "the bean herb," as it is often used to flavor green pea, bean and lentil dishes. The robust flavor of Melissa’s Savory makes it a delicious addition to all bean dishes. Somewhat reminiscent of thyme, the peppery flavor enhances meat loaf, pork stuffing and stewed tomatoes.
As a relative of the mint family, freshly chopped Savory leaves can be combined with fish, soups and pates for a rich, hardy flavor.
Melissa’s Fresh Herbs are hand selected for excellent quality. Choose fresh-looking Savory with good color and a clean, fresh scent. Avoid any brown spots or wilted stalks or leaves. Use soon after purchasing.
To keep fresh, refrigerate in a plastic bag filled with air and securely closed. Store in the vegetable crisper section of the refrigerator. If leaves do become wilted, an ice water bath can revive them.
Place Melissa’s Herbs stem side down in a jar of water (similar to fresh flowers) and cover with a tightly closed plastic bag. Store away from ethylene-producing fruits and vegetables like tomatoes, bananas and peppers.
Leaves should be thoroughly washed and dried before using.
