Purple sage pairs well with poultry and pork. Try this: Use Purple Sage Pesto as a rub on chicken prior to oven baking or on the grill. It will help crisp the skin and add a wonderful flavor and enticing aroma as it is served. Who doesn’t love stuffed pork chops? Make your favorite stuffing and add Purple Sage Pesto instead of a dried variety. It’s amazing! It brings the flavor of the sage along with a hint of walnuts and cheese. Need a compound butter? Place softened butter in your food processor, add Pesto to taste and combine. Remove from the processor and place on a sheet of cellophane.
