Using sage in recipes
« on: October 01, 2017, 13:06 »
I have a big sage plant & very rarely use it. Some of the leaves are dark purplish and others, presumably the new young growth, are green. Which leaves should I use generally

I always use the young growth, the older leaves/stems get quite woody.

It's worth having a sage plant just to make sage crisps, lovely sprinkled on risotto or soup.

Now that's a recipe I must look for!  :)

My Purple Sage is beautiful, but I must look up some recipes and actually use it.  ::)  It doesn't help that I pruned it back quite severely this year (it's doing fine) and it seemed a shame to waste it....  I now have around 40 well-rooted sage cuttings!  :lol:

Sage crisps are a bit of a fancy way of saying fried sage  :D . Gently pan fry in a splash of oil so they remain dark green (too fast and they go black), blot them on kitchen roll and sprinkle with sea salt.

Or a lovely plate of pasta, smothered with sage butter.  Not exactly slimming, but an occasional treat.
