Sage Flower Jelly

Besides being a computer geek, I’m also a bit of a foodie. I was doing a little yardwork today, planting some plants, weeding, and cleaning up our overgrown herb garden. After trimming all the blooms off the chives, I started in to do the same on the sage, as that had gone and bloomed. Thinking to myself that sage was tasty and edible and that its flower must be as well, I tasted one of the sage flowers. I was overtaken by this delicious subtle blueberryish flavor. I then proceeded to trim back all the sage blooms and took them inside. I plucked one off and gave it to my wife to try. She thought it was tasty too, so we spent the afternoon making jelly out of them. What you see above is a portion of the process.
