Ingredients

  • 2 Tablespoons of fresh sage or 1 1/2 teaspoons dried sage (fresh is preferred)
  • 1 Cup of water

Directions

Bring water almost, but now quite, to a boil. Steep for 10-15 minutes for full effects of the sage, then strain.

If desired, add lemon, honey, or cinnamon. Pour over ice or drink hot.

Sage Shopping Tip

Keep both fresh herbs and dried herbs on hand. Dry herbs will last a long time, while fresh herbs have a short shelf-life.

Sage Cooking Tip

If you want the flavor of herbs in your food without the actual pieces, wrap them in cheese cloth and cook; discard before eating.
