Three varieties of sage: tricolor, pineapple
sage (it smells like pineapple) and golden
sage, available from WhiteflowerFram.com.
||Sage is a spice that most people buy during the holiday season, to season turkey, goose or duck. But it’s more than a holiday stuffing (or a sausage stuffing).
Think of sage to season beans, in cheese recipes, with eggplant, tomatoes and any pork dish.
The pretty leaves also make a charming plate decoration or general food garnish. You can also add the leaves to iced tea, instead of mint!
RECIPE: WhiteflowerFarm.com, a premium purveyor of fine plants, recommends adding chopped fresh sage with sautéed chopped onions and garlic, and a squeeze of lemon, to cooked pasta or rice.
This wonderfully aromatic plant is a delight in the kitchen—and in the garden. Get a pot (and several for gifts) for St. Patrick’s Day!
