Traditional Uses of Sage
Sage was used extensively throughout the Old World to add flavor to meals as well as for healing purposes. Ancient healers used this herb to ward off evil spirits, protect against the plague, sharpen the senses, calm nerves and soothe snake and insect bites. In some Native American communities, dried sage is burned to promote healing, wisdom, and longevity.*
One of its earliest uses was in the kitchen. It appears in many European cuisines, especially Italian. Sage has a warm, earthy and savory flavor, making it the perfect seasoning for comfort foods that feature pork, lamb, sausage, duck and pastas.
