Rosemary is native to the Mediterranean and has been used since 500 BC. Memory and Rosemary have been linked for hundreds of years. It was a symbol for remembrance for weddings, war commemorations and funerals in Europe. In Shakespeare’s Hamlet there is the famous line “There’s rosemary, that’s for remembrance”. Today, it is still a popular spice in Europe, especially in Italy and France.
Rosemary is a woody herb with a slight piney and tea-like aroma.
Rosemary has a slightly minty, sage-like, peppery, balsamic taste with a bitter, woody aftertaste.
Rosemary is traditionally used to treat fluid retention, poor circulation, migraine, mental fatigue, panic attacks and aching joints.
Cooking & Food Pairing
Rosemary is best when added to a dish and cooked. Add sprigs to dough for making scones, biscuits or focaccia. Use in dishes featuring parmesan, chicken and tomato. Rosemary also pairs well with roast chicken, lamb or veal, pot roasts, stews and stuffing.
