Tarragon

Tarragon also called "little Dragon" has a distinctive strong flavor similar to licorice. French tarragon has a very sweet vanilla flavor compared to the coarser flavored Russian tarragon. This herb goes well in the traditional béarnaise sauce, mayonnaise and flavored vinaigrettes. It is also excellent in cream and egg-based sauces served with salmon or trout, chicken dishes and great chopped in salads.
It is easily deserved to be on or our most popular herbs today. Tarragon was also thought to be an aid against flatulence.
