The secret weapon of sage lies in its ability to get rid of greasiness and highlight the flavour of a dish. Sage is an excellent herb for all meat dishes. Sauces, soups, cutlets, minced meat dishes, pastas and rosottos are all good applications for sage.
Using the product
Sage especially highlights the flavours of cabbage, onion and beans. If you want to make the signature flavour of sage milder, you should add a good amount of parsley. Sage and rosemary work especially well together.
Some of the essential oil in sage is poisonous tuyon. Although there is only a small amount of tuyon in sage, using large amounts of sage over a long period of time may cause nervous system and digestive irregularities. Use of large amounts of sage is not recommended for women who are pregnant or nursing, nor for children.
