Hi and welcome to Discuss Cooking

Borage has a light flavor similar to cucumber and is often used in salads. Sage is also fuzzy, but I use it anyway Give it a try.

I used to grew Borage once. I occasionally used it in salads but I more used the tiny blue flowers in ice cubes. Loved them!

They are self seeding and could easily take over the herb garden if not checked.

Am just this year starting some from seed as I have a place for them to be left alone. Unfortunately I am not known for my seed starting skills. Just have to wait and see - they are only at the 2/4 leaf stage as of yet.

Well that's a new one on me. I've never even heard of Borage.

Is it similar in taste to any other herbs?
