Dried Tarragon has a warm, sweet, anise/minty aroma and flavor and is very popular in many European cuisines, most notably those from the French. Tarragon Leaves are harvested extensively in Argentina, Brazil and Mexico but France and California are the major
producers. Our Tarragon is grown in France.
Tarragon is a key ingredient in the French herb blend Herbs de Provence. Tarragon is used to highlight the flavor of other herbs and adds a distinguishing touch to dressing, salads and sauces. Tarragon's earthy taste also enhances the flavors of chicken, eggs, fish, mushrooms, seafood, tomatoes and zucchini.
Helpful hint: Tarragon's taste tends to fade a bit when cooking, so in order to enhance its flavor you should add it near the end of the cooking process.
Tarragon is a light herb and there are 18 cups in each pound so please order accordingly.
Tarragon works well in combination with basil, bay leaves, chives, dill and parsley.
