Savoury is a perennial plant which looks like thyme, though it's
flavour is a bit different.
It has a prostrate form, so you can grow it in a herb garden or
at the front of a border, or in a rock garden. It is a low plant,
and it also covers well, so you can use it as a ground-cover plant.
cooking, Winter Savoury can be used in salads, though sparingly,
as it has quite a strong flavour.
can also use it when cooking pulses - a lot of Italian dishes use
it - but should be used at the start of the cooking process.
It's very good when used in stuffing, infusing with oil and with
any lamb dishes.
very common and quite underrated herb, which apparently is very
good for flatulence......
