Originally from the Mediterranean region, sage has become widely used throughout the world. Historically utilized with rancid meats to make them more palatable. The unique flavour of sage blends well with a variety of foods; from meats and stuffings, to sauces and cheese. Sage is a wonderful companion plant for cabbage, enhancing their flavour and protecting them against the white cabbage butterfly. Sage is also a good companion for carrots and rosemary.
