Add chopped sage leaves to breads, stuffing, sauces and stews.
Sage has a strong flavour, so don’t use too much of this one.
Sage and onion are one of the original partnerships, often devalued by packet stuffing mixes.
Forgo the five minute saving and make the real thing next time you roast some pork.
How to store Sage:
Wrap in paper towels and store in a plastic bag in the refrigerator. Use within 4 to 5 days. Fresh leaves may be covered in olive oil and stored in the refrigerator up to 3 weeks. Use the flavored oil for sauteeing or in salad dressings.
