What is Savory?
There are two types of the herb savory, summer savory and winter savory. The herb is related to thyme and rosemary and each small green leaf is thin, with tapered ends and tiny hairs. Savory is pungent and peppery. Summer savory is the milder version of this, while winter savory packs more of a punch. A small amount is needed to flavor a dish and it is often sold ground into small pieces.
