 Savory Herbs Culture and Use
SAVORY HERBS are grown for three good reasons: (1) They make possible a variety of appetizing dishes at all times and are particularly useful when economical cuts of meat must take the place of those that are expensive and more favored.

As soon as the herb leaves or seeds are dry they should be cleaned by separating them from stems and other foreign matter and packed in suitable containers to prevent loss of the essential oils that give to the herbs their delicate flavor.
