Selection, Usage and Storage Information

Selection: While buying the herb, look for fresh, small, young tender leaves, as mature leaves are pungent and strong scented.

Usage: Epazote has a strong pungent flavor with dominant petroleum and mint smell. Its leaves, fresh or dried, and young shoots are being used as seasoning the dishes in Mexican, Chilean and other South American region.
