CSA mystery item

Fffc4318 b7ad 45f6 85a8 89b501c5e387  image

This came in my CSA box today- the farm is in Middle Tennessee if that helps. I asked my extremely botanically accomplished mother and she had no clue what it was so if y'all do, let me know!

Looks a bit like tarragon. Rub some between your fingers and give it the sniff test.

You are correct! I don't know why that didn't occur to either of us. Thanks so much.

I'm going to guess it's tarragon.

Does it have a smell? It looks like the wilder form or tarragon.

It looks like it could be tarragon or summer savory. They look quite a bit alike, but tarragon has more of a licorice flavor.

Tarragon?

Looks like Mexican tarragon to me. It is easier to grow in a climate like TN than the French variety. Careful, it has a very pronounced anise scent and flavor. I would suggest cutting the quantity called for in a recipe back a little.

It does look like tarragon. Eat some and tell us the flavour profile

Tarragon for sure. Make white wine tarragon vinegar, bernaise sauce etc.
Chicken tarragon is great also.
Cheers
