Savory, also called “summer savory,” is a less-commonly-used spice in the United States that provides a (you guessed it) savory flavor to dishes. “Winter savory” is also used but is even less common due to its more bitter flavor. Summer savory is a common ingredient in sausages and other dishes that involve meat with heavy herb undertones. Savory can be used dried or fresh, but I personally find it helpful to have some on hand when a random recipe calls for it. One of my favorite recipes that uses the spice savory is my Herbed Chicken Savory Crepes with Wild Mushroom “Cream” Sauce. Since savory is an herb with no appreciable nutrition, there’s no need to review it here. Dried savory is available on Amazon
