“Why should a man die, when he can go to his sage garden?”
This statement was made in Italy in the tenth century at a medical school. Many have learned since then that the effects of sage are not just medicinal.
Other than using it as an antiseptic or curing a sore throats it can be a fantastic culinary garnish and flavor boost.
The list is endless with the pairing of sage with other ingredients. Just to name a few: Poultry, Lamb, Tomatoes, cabbage, and even cheese.
And then you have the many varieties of sage that have their own unique flavor, there are at least nine members of the sage family.
Although we can’t avoid death with a sage garden, it can heighten our taste buds and better our standard of living.
