This is a recipe from mon beau-frère who lives in Hawaii.
I originally posted it a few years ago, but, as it has become a favorite, I decided to re-post in the new format with nutrition info, print options, and all that good stuff.
Plus I like this photo better.
I also made a few changes:
He uses 40 sage leaves. Mine are large so I only used 20.
He uses lemon juice. He lives in Hawaii and has lemon trees. I used Balsamic vinegar.

When I first planted my herb garden I planted a sage plant, along with marjoram, oregano, and garlic chives.
I planted other, annual herbs, each year as well.
A few years ago I decided it was too much work and I would move the herb garden into the potager. We made the potager bigger.
For some reason, unknown to me, the perennials never did well in the potager but they were indestructible in the old herb garden.
I keep ignoring them and they keep thriving.
Once again it’s an overgrown jungle and I’m going to have to take the strimmer / hedge trimmer / machete to it to get it back in line.
But look at that sage plant:
After struggling every year that I carefully tended it, now that I’m neglecting it…..
Good thing as the one in the potager just died.
