Epazote is a unique culinary herb that cannot be replaced by any other herb. It is often referred to having both an acquired aroma and taste. Its green jagged leaves emit aromas of petroleum and citrus while its flavor is pungent, lemony with a sharp finish that increases with age.
Available year-round, epazote has a peak season in winter.
Epazote is grown as a leaf vegetable and an herb. Its other common names are Mexican Tea and Wormseed.
Epazote can be poisonous if consumed in large quantities but is well known as a digestive and carminative.
Used traditionally in Mexican and Latin American cuisine, Epazote may be used in sauces, soups and as a fresh green. Pair Epazote with tomatillo, tomato, onions, fresh chile, meat, poultry and seafood. Use sparingly as Epazote has a distinctly strong flavor. To store, keep dry and refrigerate.
Epazote has been used in Mexican cuisine for hundreds of years dating back to the Aztecs who used it for cooking as well as for medicinal purposes.
Epazote is an an annual or short-lived perennial herb native to Central America, South America, and southern Mexico. It can also grow in sub-tropical regions of Europe and grows wild in warmer parts of North America.
