      Title: Batter fried sage leaves (salbey zu backen)
 Categories: German
      Yield: 8 Servings
 
      1 c  (scant) flour
      3 tb Cold water
      1    Egg, beaten
           A few tablespoons white wine
           -(or hard cider)
      1    Egg white
      1 tb Melted butter that has been
           -allowed to cool
      1 pn Salt
      1 pn (small) sugar
 
  This recipe is taken almost verbatim from a cookbook originally
  published in 1709; the language has been slightly modernized, but
  only 2 ingredients have been added (sugar and salt).
  
  plenty of nice fresh sage leaves oil or shortening for deep frying
  
  Take the flour and mix with the cold water into a thick batter that
  must be smooth.  Then mix in the beaten egg and stir well; pour in a
  little sour wine, yet not too much. Beat the egg white into soft
  peaks and fold into the batter.  Finally, add the butter as well as a
  very little salt and sugar and stir the batter once more. Wash and
  dry off the sage leaves, dredge them in the batter, and fry them on
  both sides in hot lard (see Note) until crispy.
  
  Note:  I [=Horst Scharfenberg] would suggest that you fold in the egg
  white last of all and let the batter sit for about 30 minutes
  beforehand. Also, vegetable oil or shortening is recommended for deep
  frying rather than lard.
  
  Makes 8 servings.
