Fresh rosemary
Previous Next 9 of 9 Rosemary

Rosemary is a member of the mint family and boasts needle-shaped leaves like those of an evergreen. Rosemary's strong piney lemon flavor can be overpowering, so use it sparingly.

Rosemary is used in Italian rubs and sauces. Rosemary is also used to season roasted vegetables, lamb, milk- or cream-based soups, stuffing, and herbed vinegars.

Savory herbs such as rosemary can make a surprise appearance in some desserts, such as pound cake, or even in some fruit dishes. Rosemary freezes well. Simply wash and dry well, then seal in plastic freezer bags.
