Simply savory

Savory, like chervil, is an herb that deserves to be better known on this side of the ocean. It's flavor is something like mint plus rosemary; it can be cooked long and slow in soups and stews,  added fresh  to salads, used as a garnish for vegetables or cooked with them.  Try it with cabbage. It's nicknamed the "bean" herb because of its special affinity with beans of all kinds, fresh or dried; add a  little sprig to cook with  dried beans or lentils. Some folks crush it to release more flavor, but its flavor is strong - use smallish amounts at first.
