Summer Savoury


OMG you should see my summer savoury!!!!! And smell it!! It is glorious! I have only ever used dried summer savoury in my turkey and chicken stuffing recipes, but as soon as some of this stuff is ready I am going to give it a go with fresh. It smells so good I could just lie down in it (lay down?? I swear that verb is my bane!) and roll around like an absolute lunatic! I will have to let some of it go to seed so I can replant next year as well, but will dry most of it for Christmas! After I am done rolling in the summer savoury I may  bury my face in the rosemary for good measure. Okay enough. Seriously though, is there anything that smells as divine as live herbs? I keep my basil inside and when I water it, not even disturbing the leaves, it somehow releases the most heavenly scent – it just wafts through the kitchen.

If you are new to summer savoury, it is a beautiful herb to use in stuffings, clam chowder, chicken stew (fricot acadien!) More recipes and photos coming shortly!
