Herb Guide: Choosing, Storing and Cooking
Maximize your perishable produce with our guide to choosing, storing and using all kinds of fresh herbs.
Use soft, silvery sage leaves to add fantastic, savory flavor to food. It’s an antioxidant-rich herb, like its sister herb rosemary. At the market, the leaves should look fresh and be a uniform green-gray in color. Wrap sage in a damp paper towel and place it inside a loosely closed plastic bag; it will stay fresh for several days in the fridge this way.
Tip: Though distinctive, the flavor of sage is also very delicate – as a general rule, try to add it near the end of the cooking process.
