Summer savory is an annual culinary herb that shares similar characteristics with its perennial cousin, winter savory. The herb is widely used in Hungarian, German and Romanian cuisines, especially in dishes that feature grape leaves or cabbage. Savory is also an ingredient in herbes de Provence, a common seasoning blend used in French cuisine. Use savory to flavor grilled and roasted meats and vegetables, soups, stews, sauces and beans.

The name Savory is given to two very closely related herbs, summer savory (S. hortensis) and winter savory (S. montana) Both are aromatic members of the mint family that are native to southern Europe and commonly cultivated in gardens, grown in containers and in window gardens.

Summer savory's flavor is mildly peppery and delicately pungent. In German, its common name quite literally means "bean herb." The herb is included in traditional recipes of sausage and grain sausage. It is a natural complement to beans and onions.
