              Sorry - I don't know. But I thought I'd throw in an interesting
              etymological tidbit: Finding wild sage in the area of Yerushalaim is not
              surprising since one of the names for Yerushalaim - Moriah (i.e eretz
              hamoriah, har hamoriah - Bereishit 22:2; II Divrei HaYamim 3:1) is another
              form of the word Marva.

                    However, I don't think it would be a fair swap (for you.)

                    I only have about 1/2 cup of dried savory left in my jar. So even if
                    I gave you half, it would not be much. What I am looking for is a
                    large quantity of sage - like a huge basketful - because after drying
                    it reduces to 1/3 its weight, then after removing sticks and stems it
                    shrinks down to a much smaller quantity. Therefore I need to start
                    with a large amount, that's why I want to pick it. I also have a
                    friend out in the Gush who offered to bring me some from her bush,
                    but I don't want to trouble anyone with this chore, as it is time
                    consuming to cut, scratchy to handle and bulky to transport.

                    So if anyone happens to see it growing in the Jerusalem area, please
                    give me a heads up!

                    Ruth Baks
                    Jerusalem

                    P.S. If you live in the Gush and have the land and the sunshine, why
                    not plant savory outside your door? The nurseries often have herb
                    sections, eg. Bayit Yarok in Motsa. It is inexpensive to buy a small
                    starter plant, and you will derive much pleasure (and flavor!) from
                    growing your own. (Alternatively, my offer still stands: if you come
                    to the Rova, I will be happy to share my stash.)

                      but I don't want to trouble anyone with this chore, as it is time
                      consuming to cut, scratchy to handle and bulky to transport.

                      So if anyone happens to see it growing in the Jerusalem area, please
                      give me a heads up!

                      Jerusalem

                      P.S. If you live in the Gush and have the land and the sunshine, why
                      not plant savory outside your door? The nurseries often have herb
                      sections, eg. Bayit Yarok in Motsa. It is inexpensive to buy a small
                      starter plant, and you will derive much pleasure (and flavor!) from
                      growing your own. (Alternatively, my offer still stands: if you come
                      to the Rova, I will be happy to share my stash.)

                        Summer Savory (Satureja hortensis L.)

                        botanically: tsatara (tzaddik-taf-resh-heh)
                        common Hebrew: Naadj (nun-aleph-dalet-gimmel with a 'chupchi')

                        Savory is an aromatic herb of the mint family. It has an intense
                        flavour, which could be compared to a very strong thyme with peppery
                        overtones.

                        The fresh and dried herb is used to season tomato sauces, sausages,
                        meat and egg dishes (like deviled eggs.) Savory is also an excellent
                        flavoring for all sorts of beans and legumes, and is often used by
                        Europeans in bean dishes to prevent gas. (Its German name is
                        Bohnenkraut or bean herb, as one of its medicinal properties is an
                        antiflatulent.) It's often added to vegetarian dishes, like
                        potatoes or mushrooms. Europeans, especially use Savory in bouquet
                        garni, and sometimes also include it in the French spice mixture
                        herbes de Provence. Savory combines well with herbs such as basil,
                        marjoram, parsley, chervil, sage and rosemary. It's a strong herb
                        and a little goes a long way.

                                ahead and substituted...and it worked! (Would you believe Thanksgiving
                                Stuffing with Zaatar?) It tasted just right.

                                Good luck-

                                  Savory is an aromatic herb of the mint family. It has an intense
                                  flavor, similar to a very strong thyme with peppery overtones.
                                  Because savory is a strong herb, you don't need to use very much,
                                  otherwise it will overpower the flavor of the dish.

                                  For a simple substitute, I'd recommend using thyme plus an extra dash
                                  of white pepper.

                                  The plant is called in Hebrew: tsatra (tzaddik-taf-resh-heh.)
                                  Arabic name: Naadj (nun-aleph-dalet-gimmel with a 'chupchi'.)

                                  It's a relative of zatar, which is a wild thyme, or hyssop.
                                  Actually, these three herbs, (savory, thyme and hyssop) were the
                                  predominant herbs used here in ancient times .

                                  I've never bought savory so haven't investigated commercial sources;
                                  I've picked it in the Galil and dried a small supply, which I keep in
                                  a jar. You may try checking health food stores; they often carry an
                                  array of special herbs that are organically grown. Another idea:
                                  check with homeopathic pharmacies - they carry all sorts of medicinal
                                  herbs. Ask for Satureja Hortensis (botanical name for summer savory.)

                                  You may also consider growing savory in your garden or in a pot on a
                                  sunny window sill; it only grows to be about 12 inches in height.
                                  Check with a nursery.

                                  Wait. I just did a Google search for 'savory herbs israel' and found
                                  a supplier. Here's the website: http://www.supherbs.co.il/list.html
                                  - the company is Supherbs and they sell medicinal plants. I checked
                                  their plant list and they carry Satureja hortensis (summer savory.)

                                  I don't know anything about this company, nor its products, but here
                                  is their contact info:

                                  Now, a different source - this time for fresh herbs:
                                  http://www.israflora.com/fresh-herbs.htm
                                  IsraFlora is a company dealing with agricultural export, and they are
                                  growing fresh savory right here in Israel.

                                  They offer a 'contact us' link - perhaps check with them to learn if
                                  they have distributors for the domestic market. If not, they may be
                                  able to point you to other growers who do.

                                    Don't laugh, but savory is an ancient herb prominent in the
                                    Mediterranean region, widely used in bible days. The female plant is
                                    called in Hebrew: tsatra, while the male plant is called zatar. A
                                    bit confusing. Actually the two herbs are related, belonging to the
                                    same family. Some people refer to hyssop as zatar, some refer to the
                                    wild thyme. The term zatar is rather tricky because most people
                                    associate the term with the popular ground spice blend by the same
                                    name, which includes the herb, plus a few additional ingredients,
                                    inc. sumac, sesame and salt. I'm assuming what you used in your
                                    stuffing was the herb itself, and not the ground spice blend called
                                    zatar, because the latter would taste quite different from savory.
                                    Regardless, what matters most is that you were pleased with the
                                    results.

                                    I don t understand why use a substitude, when savory is available in Israel. Well, not all the time but I find it at the grocer in rehov ha haruv in Machanneh

                                          Dear foodies, particularly those of you living out in the Gush, or other wild and wooly rural areas where sage bushes grow in abundance.  Would your wild and wooly sage bushes be in need of pruning, right about now?  If so, I would love to be a recipient of a sack of fresh sage.  These I will dry on the stalk and then discard twigs and stem.  I store the dried leaves in glass jars to be used year round for cooking.

                                          I'd like to do this soon, before the rains begin.  (If picked when damp, mold sets in and much of the harvested crop is lost.)

                                          Will be happy to exchange spices in return, or a bottle of Sababa, my private label coffee liqueur.

                                          Anyone?...
