Sage Top Tips for Winter
If you have a lot of leftover sage, then infuse into some warm olive oil for a few hours to give a sage scented oil. Ideal for drizzling over roasted vegetables mixed with just cooked pasta.
Saltimbocca is a classic Italian dish; chicken or rabbit is cooked with thin slices of Parma ham and fresh sage and served with creamy polenta.
Fry whole sprigs in oil for 2 minutes as an unique garnish of texture and flavour.
