Salvia officinalis, also known as Broadleaf Sage, Common Sage, Garden Sage, Kitchen Sage, and simply Sage, is a versatile herb with a long history of medicinal and culinary use. A member of the mint family, this perennial subshrub is evergreen and native to the Mediterranean region, but has naturalized in many places worldwide. The plant can grow up to 2ft tall and wide, with lavender, white, pink, or purple flowers in late spring or summer. The leaves are oblong, grey-green, rugose on the upper side, and nearly white underneath due to short soft hairs. Modern cultivars come in various variegated combinations. Sage leaves are strongly aromatic and used as a flavouring in cooked foods, providing a sausage-like taste to savoury dishes. They are also used as an aid to digestion, especially with heavy or oily foods. Sage leaves and flowers can be eaten raw, boiled, pickled, or used in sandwiches or sprinkled on salads for their colour and fragrance. Sage tea is beneficial to digestion, and the essential oil derived from the plant is used commercially to flavour ice cream, sweets, baked goods, and more. Sage is an essential herb in British cuisine, served as sage and onion stuffing accompanying roast turkey/chicken. Although it has a savory, slightly peppery flavour, it is commonly used as a flavouring for hot black tea in the Levant and Egypt. While certain extracts of sage may have positive effects on brain function, the thujone present may also be neurotoxic. Several cultivars are available, including 'Berggarten', 'Icterina', 'Purpurascens', and more. Sage is a must-have herb for its culinary and medicinal value.
