Sage is a perennial, shrubby herb that is in the mint family, though its flavor
is savory, rather than sweet. It is native to the mediterranean region and has been used for centuries both
for cooking and for various medicinal purposes. It is the perfect herb for Thanksgiving and Christmas recipes.
See a few of our favorites below.
Fennel is another under-used herb with a mild licorice flavor. The primary
variety grown in Florida is used for the leaves, and in the winter season we can grow the bulbing
varieties for delicious root vegetable dishes. Fennel has been used since ancient times, with the
Romans using it to combat obesity. The world's largest producer of fennel is India and fennel was
introduced into the Americas in the 1700s. The entire plant is edible: roots, stems, leaves and seeds.
