From the Latin salvere or “to heal," sage has long had a reputation for use as a medicine. Sage blends well with poultry and pork and is essential for bread stuffing. Try it in soups and stews, breakfast sausage, buttermilk fried chicken and mac ‘n cheese.
Oaktown Spice Shop has been in the Adams Point neighborhood for nine years. They focus on sourcing the absolute best-tasting version of each individual spice, then grind the spices themselves, in their shop. This means the ground spices customers find at Oaktown are bursting with flavor and are far fresher than those found elsewhere.
You can visit their own site here or find more of their spices on Keep Oakland Alive.
