Sweet, anise-flavored tarragon has also been traditionally used as a medicinal herb to aid digestion. In professional kitchens, chefs prefer French tarragon for its delicacy and flavor. When buying this spiky-leaved herb, look for bright green bunches with a strong aroma and no signs of wilting. Store tarragon in the fridge wrapped in a damp paper towel in a resealable plastic bag and it will stay fresh for about a week.
Tip: Use only the leaves and use a light hand with tarragon, as it packs a serious flavor punch.
