Also Known As: Satureja , Satureja, Savory

Satureja is a genus of aromatic plants of the family Lamiaceae, related to rosemary and thyme. There are about 30 species called savories, of which Summer savory and Winter savory are the most important in cultivation.

Both summer savory and winter savory are used to flavor food. The former is preferred by cooks but as an annual is only available in summer; winter savory is an evergreen perennial, reputed to help ease flatulence.[citation needed]

Savory plays an important part in Italian cuisine, particularly when cooking beans. It is also used to season the traditional Acadian stew known as fricot. Savory is also a key ingredient in sarmale, a stuffed cabbage dish in traditional Transylvanian cuisine.

Yerba Buena (Spanish: "good herb"; S. douglasii) is used to make a herbal tea in the western United States.
