Sage is one of the most popular herbs that has been used since ancient Roman times. Sage has aromatic leaves with a grey-green, soft surface and fine hair-like filaments. Sage has a savory, slightly peppery flavour and is used in many European cuisines, notably Italian, Balkan and Middle Eastern cooking.
