Summer savory is an annual member of the mint family that is native to the Mediterranean region. The leaf of this bushy, almost shrub-like herb has similar spicy flavor characteristics as perennial winter savory but is a bit milder and slightly sweeter. In fact, the flavor profile of summer savory has been compared to that of thyme. Savory is a culinary companion to most vegetables and, in particular, to all kinds of beans. The herb is also used to season soups, stews, savory pies, eggs, stuffing and bread puddings, beef, poultry, fish and game meats. Savory is also excellent infused in honey or vinegar, or combined with other herbs as a tableside seasoning and salt alternative.
