Broken Leaf Sage

Sage is the characteristic flavor of saltimbocca, turkey stuffing, and Lincolnshire sausages. To cooks, it is the dried leaf of the fuzzy gray shrub by the same name. Our Crushe, Dried Sage leaves are grown in Dalmatia, where downwinds from the Dinaric Alps and salty air off the Adriatic give it a remarkable pungency.

Details

The Druids believed so strongly in sage’s healing properties, they thought it could bring the dead back to life, while tea made from crushed sage leaves was said to improve both memory and prudence. Sage was also thought to counteract the indigestion caused by such rich foods as sausage or fatty poultry, and thus it became a regular ingredient in these recipes. As with all herbs, Crushed Sage Leaves are lightweight while being high in volume. For example, the 4 oz. size will fill a quart size plastic bag while the 8 oz. size will a 1-gallon bag. We recommend the 1 oz. size to most of our customers. We also carry Organic Rubbed Sage.
