My theory on this is spices such as sage and rosemary (it is also supposed
to be a problem in canning) is due to the oils in it (rosemary) and the
drying (sage). I'm going to try some that is fresh from the garden and see
how that goes.
Just a note, since I didn't get the e-mail this is in response to, cream
sauces are a no-no. Milk breaks down and becomes weird.
