sage

Sage is native to the northern Mediterranean coast, where it's used frequently in cooking. Sage's long, narrow leaves have a distinctively fuzzy texture and musty flavor redolent of eucalyptus, cedar, lemon, and mint. Italians love it with veal, while the French add it to stuffings, cured meats, sausages, and pork dishes. Americans, of course, associate it with turkey and dressing.

Sage pairs perfectly with rosemary and thyme in many dishes. Besides its versatility and compatibility with other spices, sage has ample health benefits too. For years, herbalists have recommended sage tea for treating upset stomachs and sore throats (one study found that spraying sore throats with a sage solution gave effective pain relief), and recent research found links between sage, memory function and improved mood.
