Summer Savory has a peppery flavour and we believe a superior flavour to Winter Savory.  It is an important flavouring for salami, used frequently in Mediterranean dishes and is one of the herbs in herbs de Provence.  It can be used in bean, poultry, egg, meat and fish dishes, for vinegars and as a condiment.  The peppery leaves can be used to flavour soups and as an alternative to thyme. In Germany it is called bean herb (bohenkraut) and is said to have anti-flatulence benefits and it is also said to repel blackfly on broadbeans.
