Dried sage leaves give a rich earthy taste, and also has a slightly spicy peppery flavour with a musky aroma.
Good substitutes for Sage are Rosemary and Thyme. Sage is used in many world cuisines; in the Mediterranean it is often used in tomato and cheese based dishes, in Britain and America it is used with onion to make stuffing for meat, and in French cuisine it is often used in cooking white meat and vegetable soups and stews. Use sage sparingly in recipes as the flavour can sometimes overpower other flavours in the dish.
Use the velvety flavour of sage to bring life to roasts.
Store in a dark, cool, dry place.
