The Variety

Tarragon, Artemisia dracunculus, is a perennial herb in the sunflower family. My variety is French Tarragon, regarded as the best for culinary use with a superior flavour.

For Your Appreciation

Due to the difficulty of retaining the true subtleties of flavour, this is one of the most expensive herbs, but it is well worth its costs for the flavour it imparts. Tarragon is widely used in French cuisine and has been used since early Greek times to flavour dishes. Tarragon seasons in the place of salt and therefore important to health conscious cooks.
