This leafy green herb is in the mint family. Recognize it by its grey-green fuzzy leaves.
Fresh sage has a strong flavor, so use sparingly as to not overpower other flavors in your recipes.
Fresh sage pairs well with meats, cheeses, and veggies like peas, tomatoes, eggplant, and onions. Recognize it by the grayish-green, textured leaf and rich aroma.
In the spring, some of the bundles of sage in the Abundant Harvest boxes come with pretty blue-purple flowers. The flowers are edible. They can be used to make hot tea, herbed vinegar, or to give color to cake or muffin batter.
Store your fresh sage sealed in a plastic bag in the refrigerator. It should last for about ten days.
If you won’t be able to use the herbs immediately, consider drying them to use later.
