Like oregano, thyme and rosemary, sage grows in the Mediterranean region. Its wide distribution in this area has had a major impact on food traditions, and thus sage is an ingredient in numerous French and Italian dishes.
In Northern countries, sage is often used for high-fat food like sausages, roast pork, poultry stuffing, brawn, black pudding and eel because of its ability to reduce the fatty sensation of the food.
Try adding sage to salads, stews and casseroles and tomato sauce - or sprinkle sage on pasta dishes or stir-fried vegetables. May also be used for herbal tea.
