Tarragon is a famous herb for its versatility. It has an intense taste that can be described as a combination of sweet anise and a light hint of vanilla. Adding tarragon toward the end of cooking brings out its maximum flavor and avoids its bitter side.
Tarragon's dark green leaves can be used fresh in salads and sauces or as a garnish. The dried herb enhances fish, chicken and egg dishes as well as a variety of vegetables such as potatoes, carrots, broccoli and beets.
Handling & Storage Tips
