This week’s secret ingredient for Friday Foodie Fix is Sage! If ever there was a week to use sage it will be next week. I consider it the cornerstone herb for Thanksgiving dinner. Sage is often used in dishes containing pork, cheese, beans, poultry and stuffing. It’s a favorite for making sausage. If you are looking for more seasoning suggestions turn to the back of my favorite book, The Deluxe Food Lover’s Companion (Deluxe Edition). There they list foods and what seasonings that best go with them. It’s right after the section on British and American Food and Cooking Terms. That’s been very helpful for me as I work on my Christmas menu.
Sage is a wonderfully easy herb to grow in a garden. It’s very hardy and you can really do nothing to and it looks like this. Yes, this is from my garden. I love the soft but rough texture of sage.
