I usually plant several herbs in the garden each spring including basil, rosemary, parsley, oregano, chives, thyme, and some I don't even remember. Several years ago (10 or more) I planted some tarragon and it has propagated to the point that I almost wish it were eradicated. This summer I took my string trimmer and whacked it to the ground, but alas it is on the rise again. The last two years (for various reasons or excuses) I haven't planted many herbs so I have had to purchase whatever I needed except for thyme and some oregano, and of course the tarragon. Since the tarragon is pushing up from the massacre and the fact that I don't have basil, would it be possible (if sacrilegious) to use some of the tender young tarragon leaves in place of basil as a caprese like salad? Also, if you have recipes using fresh tender tarragon I would like to see them, so I can gather these leaves while they are young and tender. Of course I will make a liter or so of tarragon flavored vinegar, but not try to dry any of it as the oil will dry up and this results in an almost flavorless herb. Thanks in advance.
