is an herb from an evergreen shrub in the
mint family. Fresh sage sprigs have long, narrow
grayish-green leaves and, although it is a member
of the mint family, has a musty, smoky aroma.
Sage enhances pork, lamb, meats, and
sausages. Chopped leaves flavor salads, pickles,
and cheese. Crumble leaves for full fragrance. Use
ground Sage sparingly as foods absorb its flavor
