Description
Tarragon is the dried leaves of the herb Artemisia dracunculus. The slender dark-green leaves have a pleasant anise-like flavor and aroma.

Uses
Tarragon blends well with other spices. It is used sauces, especially Bernaise sauce and tarragon vinegar. In French cuisine it is an integral part of fines herbes anddijon mustard.

Origins
The primary sources of Tarragon are France and California. Both have a similar flavor, but California Tarragon has a greener, more uniform color and is cleaner.

Folklore
The English word "tarragon" originates from the French word estragon or "little dragon," which is derived from the Arabic tarkhun. Some believe the herb was given this name because of its supposed ability to cure the bites of venomous reptiles, while others believe the plant was so named because of its coiled, serpent-like roots. Although alluded to briefly in the 13th century as a seasoning for vegetables, a sleep-inducing drug, and a breath sweetener, tarragon did not become well known until the 16th century.
