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 as a cooking herb for its spicy, pungent taste. Its leaves and flowers also make one of the best-tasting of all herb teas and are pleasantly enjoyed for their cleansing and antioxidant properties.

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 sore 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 leaves and flowers, so that all flavors and essential oils are released.
