Dried sage is a fantastic herb to have on hand. Both part of the mint and Mediterranean herb family, the flavour of sage is slightly minty and musky, with a strong floral aroma. Its traits make it perfect for use alongside fatty foods like goose and sausages, like our sausage and apple casserole, due to its ability to cut through the richness. Dried sage leaves are also fantastic when paired with robust root vegetables, lifting the heaviness of butternut squash and pumpkin. We pick the long, silvery sage leaves and gently dry them whole, before crushing them into smaller pieces for easy use in your everyday cooking.
Just add to taste.
Why not try...
adding to finely diced apple and pork mince for tasty meatballs, or using to liven up apple sauce. Also great mixed with breadcrumbs, chopped onion and butter for a really tasty stuffing.
Store in a cool, dry place out of direct sunlight.
