Bumper crop of tarragon - your ideas please!
My tarragon is already growing like a weed this year. I've recently seen a suggestion here of a strawberry/tarragon jam, which sounds intriguing. I'm not a huge sweets fan, so what do you do on the savory side when you find yourself with a lot of this delicious, but rather particular, herb?
first things that come to mind:
- chicken tarragon
- tuna salad
- tarragon-infused vinegar
i'm sure there are tons of great ideas here:
classically, tarragon pairs wonderfully with any egg preparation.
again classically, tarragon chicken in a french cream sauce is wonderful.
i know you said no sweets-- but i am lately obsessed with whipping the good local farm cream (not homogenized) with tarragon and serving over berries and peaches, making fruit shortcakes, etc. i may soon try an ice cream. i like a little fresh tarragon in lemonade, sometimes.
