sage [seyj]

Noun
1. someone venerated for the possession of wisdom, judgment, and experience.

Origin of sage 1.
1250-1300; Middle English (noun and adj.) < Old French < Late Latin sapidus wise, tasteful ( Latin: tasty), equivalent to sap (ere) to know, be wise, orig. to taste

Antonyms
fool.

2. an herb, Salvia officinalis, whose grayish-green leaves are used in medicine and for seasoning in cookery.
Origin of sage 2.
1275-1325; Middle English sa (u) ge < Middle French sau (l) ge < Latin salvia, derivative of salvus safe (so named from its supposed healing powers)

 

Three Kings’ Day (Wise Men) is long past, but cold season is not.  Here is an alternative to lemon & honey tea if you are still suffering:

Sage, lemon, ginger & cayenne pepper tea

Boiling water
Sage
Lemon juice
Ginger
Cayenne pepper (I only had chili powder on hand.)
Maple syrup

I would agree with the cookery book writer when she claims that the “maple syrup adds a little smoky sweetness”.
