1/2 Photos of Fried Sage Garnish
Saw Paulette Mitchell make this on TV and decide see if it would work and not only did it work it was also quick, easy and made a very pretty garnish. We used it at Thanksgiving as a garnish on a creamy squash soup and everyone enjoyed both the light sage flavor and how pretty it looked. *The fried sage will keep for up to 2 days in a tightly closed container at room temperature. * The cook time is estimated as I was not watching the clock when I did it.

- 1Heat the oil in a small saucepan over medium-high heat.
- 2When the oil is hot so that drops of water sizzle when sprinkled into the oil, add the sage leaves. Fry for about 15 seconds, turning occasionally with a slotted spoon or tongs. (Don't let the leaves brown, or they’ll become bitter.).
- 3Transfer the leaves onto a paper towel-lined plate. The leaves will become crisp as they cool. Sprinkle lightly with fine-textured salt.
