This morning, I made omelettes. I like tarragon in omelettes, but the shrub prefers a warmer, drier clime than what you get in the Nova Scotia highlands so we can’t grow it here. Ox-eye daisy is a good substitute for tarragon, though, and it is prolific in most places. You need about twice as much leaf to get the same tarragon flavor, and if you don’t dry it out first, it has a mild carrot taste, too. But it does work very well. Go ahead, pluck the leaves from a friendly ox-eye daisy and give it a try. A truly useful, remarkable and abundant herb.
