A very tasty split pea soup, with estragon… a great spice, know as the spice of people who know how to eat well! Just remember to add it to your meal at the end, because if you cook it it will loose its aroma and taste. It is very special, some people love and other hate it, but it sure is interesting. It goes well with lemon, but don’t try to combine it with other strong spices, as it will not work well.

Useful tip: It is an insect repellent, so you can use it in the summer to send mosquitoes, flies and other annoying insects away without destroying the enviroment with damaging chemicals.
