Native to southern Russia and western Asia, Tarragon is an herb that is slightly bittersweet and similar, yet unique, to the taste of anise, fennel, or licorice.
Essential to French cooking, and in Hollandaise, Bearnaise and tartar sauces. Adds spice to eggs, mushrooms, asparagus, poultry and shellfish. Use sparingly or to taste.
Tarragon has been used to support digestion.
