Spring's Sage

For the wise gardener, you must plant Sage.

What herbs will you be planting in your soon-to-be kitchen garden? A sunny position and well-drained soil - that's all you need to garner yourself some sage leaves.  Herbs are easy to plant, grow and use for its culinary and medicinal uses. Why do we love sage? It's a comeback kid even after this worse-for-wear New England winter. In the early stages of the garden, it's ready for use. And while sage compliments many culinary recipes, here's a sage and vinegar concoction for bruises, swellings and stings. We might be getting a few of those as we start to dig in the soil this spring.

Bruise a handful of fresh sage leaves by flattening them with a rolling pin. Place in a pan and cover with cider vinegar. Simmer very gently until the leaves are soft. Wrap the leaves in a cloth and apply warm.  (From Healing Remedies -C. Norman Shealy)
