Sage: Main Image

Buying Tips

Choose sage that is strongly scented.


Sage is available as fresh or dried leaves. Dried sage is either “rubbed” or ground; rubbed sage has gone through a minimum grinding to become a fluffy, velvety powder, while ground sage is more finely ground.

There’s also a variety called pineapple sage, which has a vibrant sweet pineapple scent.
