Tarragon is quickly becoming one of my favorite herbs to cook with! It’s the perfect compliment to egg and cheese dishes, as well as soups and poultry. The most common variety, and the most popular for using in culinary dishes, is French tarragon. (Tarragon is one of the herbs used in the French seasoning, herbes de provençe). It has flavor that is similar to anise. Because of the dominate flavor of tarragon, you want to be careful what other herbs and seasonings you pair it with (so that they don’t compete with one another). Fresh tarragon is best but if using dried tarragon, keep in mind the ratio of 1 Tbs fresh equals 1 tsp dried. Heat intensifies the flavor of tarragon and will allow the herb to “open up”.
