What a lovely herb and I am fascinated by it lately. When I went to CA to visit with my youngest sister one of the first things I noticed is this stuff is growing every where. This is some that was growing down off a balcony over the edge and covering a sign below. She had an actual hedge of Rosemary growing and she saves it when she trims the hedge then uses it to smoke her meals when she uses the barbecue.
Here is a nice recipe for bread. I have made this a few times, I simply shaped the dough and let it rise about 45 minutes, brushed the top with olive oil and sprinkled on Parmesan cheese. Baked for about 15 minutes on a stone. We tore it into chunks and ate with garlic infused olive oil. This recipe also uses fresh herbs but I used dried. I increased those to 2 tsp. each
Rosemary Herb Bread
How about trying Rosemary infused olive oil over popcorn? We had some at my sister’s house and it was delicious.
I was doing some reading about the medicinal properties and found Rosemary has healing properties of being pain relieving, restorative, stimulating, anti-bacterial, decongestant, diuretic and anti-fungal. Rosemary is used in the treatment of muscular pain, rheumatism, circulation problems, mental fatigue, nervous exhaustion, cellulite, arthritis, colds, bronchitis, fluid retention, sinusitis and is suitable for dry, mature skin and acne. People with high blood pressure should not use it.
What a nice plant, too bad it is an annual around her but maybe worth starting it every year. Something to think about.
