Aromatic foliage has a strong peppery flavor that enhances bean dishes and complements strong-flavored game meats and pâté. Makes a good sood salt or pepper substitute, and may be used fresh or dry.. Periodic shearing encourages tender, flavorful new growth, and also keeps plants from becoming woody and less attractive with age. Harvest before the white to lilac flowers appear.
