Sage appears in many European recipes, especially Italian dishes. Our sage is grown in Egypt, Turkey, and Spain. It has a slightly sweet and spicy taste that is somewhat bitter and astringent. Sage has a calming and relaxing smell and in some places in Europe the plant is grown specifically for essential oils. We love cooking with sage because of the unique fragrance and flavor that it brings to our fall and winter recipes. The smell while cooking gives a warm and comforting memory of your favorite cold weather recipes!
Garlic Salt is one of our universal seasonings that taste great with almost every cuisine and savory recipe. Garlic salt is native to central Asia, and it was long favored by the Ancient Egyptians. Additionally it has become a staple in Mediterranean cuisines. We mix our garlic granules with high-quality sea salt to produce a strong flavorful blend.
