Marjoram, Tarragon and Sage

When I was out looking for cilantro seeds on the 4th of July, I found a few more herbs that I had wanted to put on my deck. Marjoram, tarragon and sage.

I've never used tarragon before, but I understand that it is known for its cool, bittersweet minty flavor and anise-like aroma. Used in egg dishes a lot. I found a recipe for tarragon chicken that sounds real good!

I never used marjoram before either. But there are recipes for this too, such as chicken marsala.

Now sage, I love cooking with sage in the fall time. Sausage and pumpkin dishes especially. There is a pumpkin sage pasta that I make that is absolutely delicious!

I love to try new herbs. It can make a simple dish stand out and scream, "I'm gourmet!".
