Highly aromatic with a licorice-like flavor, tarragon is a most commonly used in French cuisine on roasted chicken, omelets, vinaigrette, herb butter and the classic béarnaise sauce. Tarragon grows in dry, sunny regions on vast, cultivated fields. At McCormick, we harvest our tarragon at its peak then dried it within hours so that it retains its bright color and fresh, herbaceous taste. Tarragon’s unique bittersweet taste complements fish, shellfish, poultry, egg dishes and salads. It flavors vinaigrettes, sauces, soups, aioli and herb butter for vegetables. Use 1 tsp. dried tarragon in place of 1 Tbsp. chopped fresh tarragon. For best flavor, use a light hand when adding tarragon and add it near the end of the cooking time.
