Sage Seeds

The "Thanksgiving Seasoning"

You probably imagine stuffing and a juicy Thanksgiving turkey when you think of sage. This strong aromatic herb's flavor can be difficult to describe, ranging from slightly bitter or 'woody' to sweet and savory. However you describe it, the taste of sage is one you'll recognize right away. Sage is a shrubby perennial with gray-green, wooly leaves and lilac-blue flowers in early to midsummer. Grown from plants or seeds, and used fresh or dried, sage will provide plenty of tasty leaves ready to add their distinctive flavor to sausages, cheeses, and more.
