  • To rub mine, I just rub my dried leaves through my coarse metal sieve. Not a colander. But, a sieve. This gives the sage a soft, fluffy powdery feel. If you look at the sage in the bottles at the store, you will see what I'm talking about. However, to make dressings and such, you can just chop it up nice and fine and it will do just as well.

  • google it, lol

    I dont really know but I would have to guess that it would be more like grinding it up when its still fresh (more like mashing because of the moisture) But I really have no idea lol
