Summer Savory (Chubritza)


The herb Summer Savory is one of my favorite flavors. In most Eastern European countries is called chubritsa, in Cyrllic чубрица. Summer Savory provides a strong and a very unique flavor to the most simple and the most extravagant of dishes.
It is widely used in Eastern Europe because it is a helpful expectorant for lungs and head, and also a very useful digestive aid. It might be interesting to know that rubbing a sprig of Summer Savory on a bee or wasp sting gives instant relief.
I use Summer Savory very often in my recipes.
