    • Thanks for your comment. You will find tarragon in the spice section of your favorite supermarket, near the salt and pepper. I especially like the flavor of tarragon. I also use it with olive oil in green peas.

      Have a good day. Let me know how your dinner turns out.

      Thanks again, Celia
