A: When it's a vintage tea towel wall hanging like this.
I found this little beauty in an old fashioned, proper, junk shop on the weekend. It set me back one dollar and two lids full of Napisan (it was FILTHY!) I love it.
I remember finding an old jar of Savory (well past its use-by-date) in Lucy Violet's pantry when we cleaned up her little house when she died. I've never used it myself though, or even seen a jar among all the other herbs and spices in the supermarket, for that matter. Have you?
My wall hanging says this about Savory:
A herb of the mint family. Comes from France and Spain. Ground for flavouring meat, poultry and sauces.
I just love its name - I think it's the best name ever for a herb, much more exciting than ordinary old Basil, Dill, or Mint. I reckon it's up there with Marjoram, (which also has a nice ring to it) don't you?
I'm quite fond of Sage too, and it's such a pretty plant. Gorgeous silver foliage, pretty purple flowers in Spring. You should grow some - it's hardy and bees love it. Here's ours (it has thrived on neglect, and three hot, dry Summers!)
