Tarragon’s flavor is similar to anise but with a more subtle flavor. Tarragon is delicious with egg-based dishes and with fish and poultry. Try adding it to wine vinegar or to butter for unique flavors.
Tarragon is called the “King of Herbs” by the French because it is the main flavoring in many of the sauces in classic French cuisine, such as barnaise, rigavote and tartare. When paired with chopped sprigs of fresh parsley, chives, and chervil, you have the traditional seasoning blend known as fines herbs. This aromatic blend enhances the flavors of egg, chicken and fish dishes, and is also used as a basis for salad dressings. Also try tarragon in your scrambled eggs.
Tarragon is sensitive to heat, so store in a cool, dark place and add to dishes near the end of cooking.
