Chubritsa (summer savory) is an annual plant with a specific taste.

Its leaves (whether dried or fresh) contribute a characteristic aroma to meat, legume dishes and stews.

Summer savory is a team player. Works well with parsley, celery, paprika, fenugreek and of course it’s a key part of sharena sol, spice mix that you can’t leave Bulgaria without trying!
