Crema di salvia: what is this?

Olivia | Sep 28, 2008 10:33 AM

I recieved a small jar of "crema di salvia" as a souvenir from Italy. My questions are:

1) does "salvia" refer to ordinary sage or is this it the salvia that makes you high? (Yikes!)

2) assuming it's the non-hallucinogenic, garden variety sage we're talking about, how is this used? Do you toss it with pasta? Spread it on bread?

Normally I'd just go for it, but I'm nursing an infant so being *that* experimental isn't in the cards right now <lol>
