Thank you! I’m in love with the scent.
All ready for winter cooking! You’ve reminded me I need to make another harvest. 🙂
Ooo yes! To be honest, I mostly use sage to make tea. Do you have any favourite dishes that requires sage?
I like sage with poultry, in soups, and salad dressings. My spouse likes to sprinkle the dried leaves on salad, which I find a bit strong. I’ve never had sage tea, I will try it. Btw, I went right out and harvested while it was fresh in my mind, now my hands smell good! 😉
Wonderful! I sometimes have it in salad dressings, but I’ve never tried to have it as a part of the salad. I like it in vegetable soups, but my daughter do not like it, she refuses to eat if food have sage in it..
Kids palettes are much more sensitive than adults. Sage has a pretty strong flavor!
I just started growing fresh sage, basil, mint and cilantro in small pots outside…they love the sunshine of LA and grew fast and delicious!
Wonderful! I’d love to have a much bigger herb garden!
Love it! Having a herb garden is lovely and oh-so-fresh. 🙂
Thank you! Yes, it is! I’d like to have a much bigger herb garden next year. Last night we made fruit smoothies and added Apple mint (Mentha suaveolens). It was delicious! Have a great weekend!
I am growing a Mexican sage – it looks like a similar leaf as this but has a purple flower, I wonder if it is as edible as this one of yours?
In small doses I believe it is OK, but all salvias are toxic in big doses. The Mexican sage doesn’t taste as much, but I personally think they are more beautiful.
Oh thanks so much for that useful information!
Looking at your lovely leaves I thought of Crisp Battered Sage leaves – a friend made it for us some years ago and I still remember the flavours & textures!
That sounds delicious!
