Tarragon is a herbaceous perennial that grows to about 2 feet tall and rarely flowers. It has multi-branched growth with narrow, somewhat twisted, green leaves. It is commonly used in meat, fish, seafood, and vegetable recipes. Tarragon has a strong flavor, so use lightly.
Tarragon is best preserved in vinegar or frozen for storage. You can also dry the herb for later use. Hang sprigs in a shady, warm, dry place until well-dried. Store in airtight containers. To freeze, swish branches in cool water to remove debris, pat dry and strip leaves from the stems. Place in freezer bags and remove excess air. You can also freeze portions by using ice cube trays. Fill each cell 3/4 full with the leaves and add hot water to cover. Once frozen, remove the cubes and store in a freezer bag or container to add to your recipes late.
