I love having tarragon in the yard! Apparently it doesn’t dry well. I attempted both preservation methods: mixing it with butter, rolling it, and storing it in the freezer, and stuffing it into a bottle with some white wine vinegar.
Nick and I broke out the tarragon butter for Valentine’s day steaks, and it was FANTASTIC. Made me miss summer, when I was making mayonnaise-ish sauces with the stuff for grilled salmon and vegetables. The vinegar I haven’t used much, but I do like what I’ve tasted.
I pruned the tarragon back to the soil level, and it’s sprouting up nicely already (2/27). Cannot wait.
