About Sage Leaves Organic

Sage has a fragrant aroma and a powerful flavor that makes it an excellent flavor enhancer for a wide variety of foods including vegetables, seafood, steak, pork tenderloin, turkey, chicken, breadsticks, muffins, and many others.

It is a savory herb, slightly peppery with tones of camphor. The flavor is astringent but warm. This herb is faintly bitter and its flavor is an assertive one. Like for oregano, a little bit of sage goes a long way.

Sage has a very long history and has been used since ancient times for several purposes, from warding off evil to boosting female fertility. It originated in the Mediterranean and was noted as being one of the most important herbs. This herb was utilized by the Romans to assist in digestion and was also used to treat ulcers, wounds, and sore throats. Sage is an herb that is prized for its strong herbal aroma and earthy flavor. It is used in savory recipes and is a common ingredient in ‘holiday meal’ stuffing.

How to use

Sage is one if the popular herbs in North American and European cuisines and is commonly used fresh or dried. Sage is an herb that retains much of its flavor once it is dried. It has an earthy taste, combining the scents and flavors of citrus and pine. Dried sage should be added at the start so the flavor has time to mellow. Sage is often paired with other herbs such as thyme, marjoram, and rosemary and harmonizes well with garlic, onion, oregano, parsley, and laurel. The pine and citrus notes of sage are good at cutting through the richness of meats like pork and lamb.
