A journey of 3000 years to bring gourmet, time saving pure spice blends to you the Home Chef
Make no mistake, Sage is not one of those team player Spices (or Herb in this case), happy to be part of a harmonious flavour blend.
Sage needs to be the lead but once settled into a recipe it will provide a wonderful sweet and sour Umami with warm notes of eucalyptus and lemon.
You will find Sage is a winner with Pork and especially Pork Belly where the powerful oils cut through the fat.
Equally Sage is terrific when part of a rich chicken stuffing, say, Lemon, Spring Onions and Fennel.
And Sage with Ricotta is a nice match, especially Pork and Ricotta meatballs where the Sage gives the Ricotta half a chance to be noticed !
For Home Chefs it is important to note that dried Sage is a little more powerful than fresh so best to adjust the recipe if you are using dried Sage.
