Organic Pineapple sage is the BEST herb to have in your garden because it has so many uses and the best smell. We bought a large starter plant at the Concord Farmers Market on Saturday. The farmers market is open every Saturday From 8:30am-12pm. We got a bunch of plants for under $20. I am going to tell you my top five uses for pineapple sage.
- Add leaves to hot or cold water
- Add to fruit and green salads
- Add to smoothies
- Add minced leaves to salsa
- Add minced leaves into Homeade bread.
Pineapple sage is a tasty compliment to almost any dish. It is refreshingly sweet and like a taste of the tropics. It has a wonderful smell and pretty leaves. The plant gets its name from the pineapple smell of the leaves, although, it is not actually related to the pineapple plant.
This herb is said to be used in traditional Mexican Medicine. Pineapple sage is said to help with anxiety, digestion, calming and more. Eating this exotic sage is only one option. It could also be added to a flower bouquet potpourri and even used in perfume. I love burning regular sage and look forward to drying pineapple sage leaves and burning them. Enjoy!
