Sage is an Old World culinary herb found in many kitchen pantries. Also known as common sage, it is an evergreen shrub that is part of the mint family. Its grayish-green leaves have a strong aroma and impart a savory and unmistakable peppery earthy flavor to foods. Sage is incredibly versatile, popular for use with turkey, chicken, fish, rice, and cheese plus it is easy to add to soups, stews, salads, and baked dishes. It is commonly used in beverages such as tea and as an ingredient for preserving nearly any meat or cheese.
Sage packs a healthy dose of vitamins - especially vitamin K - minerals, and antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidants properties which are linked to several health benefits. It has been an essential ingredient in the practice of traditional medicine for thousands of years. Sage has been used to help support oral health, aid brain function, treat
menopausal symptoms, and lower blood sugar and cholesterol levels. Considered a sacred herb, sage is utilized for smudging ceremonies as well.
