Scattered among our hundred-year old olive trees in Olympia, one may find this miraculous pink-flowered shrub in abundance. Also known as savory of Crete, wild savory is used to flavor meats and enjoyed as an infusion for its cleansing and antioxidant properties.
Greek Wild-Grown Herbs
It seasons a dish without the need for salt or pepper; pairs well with beef and chicken soups, fish, pork, lamb, game, green vegetables, eggs and marinades.
Savory is a basic ingredient in herbal teas for its digestive and antibacterial properties. It relieves of diarrhea, stomachache and soar throat. Diabetics use it to control excessive thirst.
Even a small amount is enough for great taste results. Before adding the herb to your dish or tea, rub the flowers, so that all flavors and essential oils are released.
