How is the herb winter savory best used?
Savory is a great flavoring for beans, eggs, sausage, stews, fish, and poultry, and it makes a good substitute for sage. As a garden plant, it is an attractive addition to a rock garden. A perennial that grows 8 to 12 inches tall, it can be started from seed sown directly into a moist, sunny location. Germination is slow, however, and you may have more luck with stem cuttings or dividing existing plants. Cut savory back to 3 inches each spring to encourage new growth and to keep the plants compact. Replanting may be necessary after five years.
