substitute for Summer Savory

I am making a receipe for Apple Sausage Stuffing for turkey and it calls for 2 Tablespoons of Summer Savory. However I can't buy that while I'm at our lake home. What can do for substitution?

lakeponto....They say you could substitute thyme if you have it. Sure most places would carry that. Sometimes I just use poultry seasoning comes in a box everything is already in it.

Found this great website about herbs.

I also found this info:

Savory Leaves
The flavor is a cross between thyme and mint with a touch of pepper. It is traditionally used to season bean soup, but savory also adds nice flavor to chicken or beef soup or stew, baked chicken, pork, stuffing and vegetables. From Albania


I've also read that you can use a light combo of Thyme with a touch of Rosemary

Summer Savory is a lighter version of Winter Savory. Its flavor is peppery and its fragrance is piney.


I agree with Sueann, If I didnt have any Thyme on hand, I would use a pinch of poultry seasoning.

Based on a recipe I used from www.allrecipes.com, it called for summer savory (also known as chubrista).

It read:

The recipe calls for 'chubritsa', a Bulgarian herb that can be difficult to find in the states, so basil can be substituted in its place.

The recipe was for Musaka (a beef, potato dish).

Hi SkiGirl, Thanks for sharing that info!

BTW, I love Musaka but have never tried making it. If you have the recipe handy, will you share it?


Thanks
Tami

Sure! It's a simple one, I sometimes add broiled eggplant cubes because I think that's usually traditional? I've never had it at a restaurant so I don't know if it's authentic!

INGREDIENTS:

  • 5 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 teaspoon ground paprika
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 4 potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 1 (6.5 ounce) can tomato sauce
  • 1 tablespoon chopped summer savory (chubritsa)
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 2/3 cup yogurt
DIRECTIONS:
  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
  2. Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat. Cook ground beef until evenly brown. Season with paprika, cumin, salt, and pepper. Stir in potatoes, and cook for 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in tomato sauce, and summer savory. Add enough water to just barely cover. Reduce heat, and simmer 15 minutes.
  3. Pour meat mixture into 9x13 inch baking dish, and spread evenly. In a small bowl, mix together the egg and yogurt; pour, and spread evenly over meat mixture.
  4. Bake in preheated oven for 30 to 40 minutes, or until top is golden brown.

You can go here to change the no. of servings; this one makes 4 servings. Also you can read on the reviews and what other people have changed to their liking (regarding the potatoes, etc).

Thanks! This looks easy enough.

When I lived in Pa., my sister and I were good friends with a Greek family and the mother used to make this homemade to sell at their restaurant/bar. I havent had it in quite a while. MMM!!
