My Advice for Sage is to grind it thoroughly and mix it with softened butter and toss with a nice pasta to serve with a..... oh wait a minute now I get it. You didn't mean...

I like! Hmm, maybe with chicken.

Much better to stuff a bottle full of fresh sage and pour hot olive oil over them; do not cap until cooled.
you can then strain out the sage flavoured oil or just use from the bottle, refreshing the oil as necessary.

Also works with basil, oregano, rosemary.....or combo's. Don't do it with garlic unless you are going to refrigerate.

Olive oil and basil: the food of the Gods.

No, the food of the Gods is bacon. they just don't want anyone to know that. (which is why so many religions ban pork)

Praise the Lord, and pass the fatback!

Hhm, maybe the food of the gods is bacon and/or butter, unless you're already pretty thin and your cholesterol is still sky-high. For me it's chicken and that margarine that has so little fat in it that it "sqeaks" in your mouth!

Any pork products.... ahhhh ..... don't get me started... I'm living in a Moslem country and not had pork in months...I've got to keep the cravings away until I get home in July ... don't do this to me.... actually I am thinking of going to Bulgaria for Easter and ... will eat sooo much pork.
I love all whole food cooking. Natural uncomplicated food and as little salt or oil as possible. It helps with the waistline too that way:)
