Salvia Officinalis! Sounds like the singings of a church choir, but no! This is the little herb that could, the humble utility player sage, used throughout the ages to ward off evil and heal ailments. Don't worry, we aren't asking you to cast spells or heal through herbage. You'll just use the minced sage, with a slight pepper-y edge, to perfectly flavor the chicken and the cranberry sauce in this meal. No Latin, no hocus pocus, just good old delicious.
