What is savory?

summer savory - cookthink

Savory is an aromatic herb from Southern Europe that is a cross between mint and thyme. Its name comes from the Latin word satureia (satyr's herb) that refers to its reputation as an aphrodisiac.

Both summer and winter savory are used in cooking. In Provence, either fresh or dried savory is a popular flavoring for pulses, salads and grilled meat; dried savory, which can often be found in Herbes de Provence, is used as well to flavor soups, pâté and other dishes.

Savory is also a popular seasoning regularly found on Bulgarian tables, next to the salt and paprika.
