The herb 'savory' in sausage question

Post by polka » Sun Sep 01, 2019 02:31

Howdy All

Received a breakfast sausage recipe from a friend several years ago, and it includes the herb "Savory." I have never made it. Just ran across it again, a day or so ago.

I used to grow herbs way before I ever thought of making sausage. I don't have any on hand. So, I need to go looking for it.

Which is more useful in Sausage -- summer savory, or winter savory (if I get the choice at the grocery story) ?

Thanks for your considerations.

I'd go with summer, I think winter savory is bitter. but then again it would depend on the recipe.

According to Wiki - Summer savory is preferred over winter savory for use in sausages because of its sweeter, more delicate aroma.
