Today, we invite you to explore tarragon – a versatile herb renowned for its distinct flavour and aromatic qualities. We quickly delve into the origins, culinary uses, and health benefits of tarragon, and discover why it deserves a place of honour in your NZ kitchen.

Unveiling the Essence of Tarragon: Tarragon, scientifically known as Artemisia dracunculus, is a perennial herb native to Eurasia and North America. With its slender, green leaves and delicate, licorice-like flavour, tarragon adds a unique touch to a variety of dishes. Whether used fresh or dried, tarragon imparts a subtle sweetness and complexity that elevates both savoury and sweet recipes.

Corresponding to its species name, a common term for the tarragon plant is "dragon herb." 

French tarragon is the variety generally considered best for the kitchen, but is difficult to grow from seed. It is best to cultivate by root division. It is normally purchased as a plant, and some care must be taken to ensure that true French tarragon is purchased. A perennial, it normally goes dormant in winter. It likes a hot, sunny spot, without excessive watering.

Exploring the Culinary Versatility of Tarragon: Tarragon's versatility knows no bounds, making it a prized ingredient in cuisines around the world. In French cuisine, tarragon plays a starring role in the classic sauce béarnaise, lending its distinctive flavour to the rich and creamy sauce. It also pairs beautifully with chicken, fish, and eggs, infusing dishes with a subtle hint of sweetness and aroma. In Mediterranean cooking, tarragon is often used to flavour vinegars, marinades, and dressings, adding depth and complexity to salads and grilled vegetables. With its delicate flavour and aromatic qualities, tarragon is a culinary powerhouse that can enhance a wide range of dishes with its unique profile.

Health Benefits of Tarragon: Beyond its culinary uses, tarragon offers a plethora of health benefits that make it a valuable addition to any diet. Rich in antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals, tarragon has been traditionally used in herbal medicine to alleviate digestive issues, stimulate appetite, and promote overall well-being. Studies have also shown that tarragon may have anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties, making it a natural remedy for various ailments.

Incorporating Tarragon into Your Cooking Routine: Adding tarragon to your favourite NZ recipes is a simple and delicious way to elevate your cooking to new heights. Whether you're making a classic chicken tarragon dish, adding a sprinkle of dried tarragon to soups and stews, or infusing vinegar with fresh tarragon for salad dressings, the possibilities are endless.
