Yes you read that right….Fried Sage Leaves! Have you ever heard of such a thing? I know I hadn’t until my dear blogger friend at http://www.TeaByLeafBlog.wordpress.com told me about them. Well you know I had to give them a try, especially since I have a garden full of sage!

Fried Sage Leaves are delicate and crunchy. You can eat them fried as is, or crumble them up and put them in a recipe. I opted for the latter and will post that recipe tomorrow. When you fry sage leaves, the flavor mellows out to a mild yet delicious taste. I did taste the leaves after I fried them and they were very good.

    • It was very interesting! They get so thin and crunch like a chip…lol I really liked them in the pasta dish I made. Added a light flavor and looked like I added spinach. The first 4 I over cooked. They are done in like 2-5 seconds.
