The most desirable tarragon is the French variety, which has long, slender leaves and a delicate flavour with hints of licorice and anise. Russian and Mexican varieties, although more easily available, have inferior flavour.

To Buy:
When buying fresh, avoid bunches with yellow flowers as they are not true French tarragon. Dried leaves should be cut into clearly-definable sections of narrow leaves.
To Store:
Store fresh bunches in water in the fridge with a clean plastic bag pulled down over the leaves and secured by folding open ends under the base of the water container. They will keep for up to 5 days this way. Store dried tarragon in an airtight container away from heat, light and humidity.
Tips & Tricks:
Popular in French cuisine, add tarragon to sauces for chicken, to egg dishes and to stuffings for poultry. Fresh leaves, deep-fried and served immediately, make a stylish garnish.
