Tarragon

Tarragon is a very popular culinary herb that also makes a great little addition to your daily Blast. Great for heart health and lowering blood sugar levels, it's thought to have originated in Central Asia and is known for stimulating the appetite. With a taste of fennel, anise and licorice, a little goes a long way! It pairs well with spinach, tomato, carrots and artichokes.

Selection Process

Fresh tarragon is available late into the spring and summer seasons. Buy fresh when possible and avoid tarragon with shriveled, discolored leaves. Store in the vegetable container in your fridge, or if dried, store in an airtight container.
