I have to say that I think sage is my favorite herb. Of course, in the summer, I say that basil is my favorite, so apparently I change my mind with the seasons. In addition to it's earthy flavor, it's so versatile. It can be roasted, fried, sautéed and goes with both savory and sweet. It's aroma just oozes fall, but since we will be eating a rafter of birds in the coming weeks, the next best meat pairing for sage is pork.
