Sage – Common

Fresh Sage in Louisville

The sages are vitally important culinary herbs! They contribute a wonderful and distinct flavor to so many dishes, thought sage is perhaps most associated with Thanksgiving dinner. Purple and common (green) sage can be used interchangeably in most recipes or preparations. Green sage leaves are larger, rounder and slightly thicker. Their size makes them perfect for infusing butter or oil or for dishes that require a bouquet garni or other whole leaf herbs.

Use sage to infuse butter for traditional sage and onion stuffing or to baste chicken or pork. Sage is perfect when paired with chicken, duck, goose or other poultry. A great way to flavor poultry with sage is by stuffing the cavity of the bird with sage (or my Poultry Blend, which also includes sage!). Dried or fresh sage makes a wonderful addition to roasted vegetables. Medicinally, sage can be steeped for 20 minutes to make a throat soothing tea.

What to Do With Fresh Herbs 

Many people who purchase fresh herbs will use them for specific recipes or other cooking applications. In most cases, fresh herbs are added towards the end of the cooking process or sprinkled over the finished dish. Herbs can be steeped in warm (not HOT) water to make herbal teas or marinated in vinegar to flavor it. Here’s a few more ideas for using your herbs.

Fresh sage has many culinary and medicinal uses. It’s a delicious, comforting herb that’s perfect with chicken or turkey or in stews. And, of course, it’s essential for sage and onion dressing!


While herbs are generally safe to consume, there are always exceptions or contraindications. You should always seek medical advice before using herbs medicinally.
