Herby Mondays – Rosemary

Rosemary

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Two names in one
Mary and Rose
Pointy leaves having fun
Like soulmates they pose

Even though, rosemary’s intense and woodsy aroma has traditionally been paired with meat, lamb and chicken, this herb imparts a unique flavor to baked potatoes and the popular focaccia bread. Predominantly used in Italian and Mediterranean cuisine, this herb is used with a light hand due to its strong flavors. Rosemary is one of the five herbs comprising the bouquet garni – a bundle of fresh herbs used in stocks and stews. Rosemary infused oil is extremely good for skin and speeds healing of wounds and bruises.
