Smart Fuel: Tarragon
Posted By Worker Bee On December 13, 2007 @ 12:53 pm In Diet,Health,Nutrition,Smart Fuel | 6 Comments
Tarragon is for more than fish. This overlooked but deliciously sweet, rich herb  offers major flavor and health benefits. Tarragon has a strong fragrance and a slight licorice taste, but it also has subtle earthy notes – it’s a bit fuller in flavor than basil, and not quite as sharp, either. You can interchange tarragon for basil in recipes for a slightly mellower, sweeter taste and a softer, more velvety texture. Is your mouth watering yet? Tarragon, a perennial, is easy to grow, too. It’s really only good fresh.
Tarragon is very low in calories, like most greens and herbs, and like purslane , contains some Omega-3’s. It has natural antimicrobial properties and contains generous amounts of many nutrients, including vitamin A, vitamin C, iron, calcium and trace minerals. The primary benefit of tarragon is the fiber, but we think the aromatherapeutic benefit is a close second!
