"Oh-so-evocative" of French cuisine, Tarragon conjures up memories or dreams of the Provence countryside or Parisian cityscape. Tarragon has a lovely licorice-like flavour in cooking. It is used to infuse vinegar and is an essential ingredient in the French herb blend known as fines herbes. Tarragon is a primary flavouring in a classic Bearnaise sauce. Delicious in salads such as roasted onion and beets, and can be added to mayonnaise and used in egg salad or as a dip for poached shrimp or deep-fried oysters. Excellent in rich cream sauces.
